SEM analysis of polymers

You want to analyze your polymers by scanning electron microscopy (SEM)?

What is scanning electron microscopy (SEM)?

SEM is a method of electron microscopy. It allows to determine the surface structure and the morphology of a material.

What is a polymer?

A polymer is a large molecule formed by the linking of several groups called monomers.

Each polymer is formulated to have specific properties or performances that meet the specifications of a specific field of application.

Why analyze a polymer by SEM?

As previously explained, each polymer is formulated to have specific characteristics for an application. Thus, SEM analysis of polymers can be used to ensure that the product is fit for purpose and then verify compliance.

SEM analysis is also useful when you encounter failure problems. It allows, among other things, to study the ruptures and deformations as well as the premature aging of polymers.
