  • High temperature HPLC for polyolefins (HT HPLC)

  • Crystallization analysis fractionation (CRYSTAF)

  • Temperature rising elution fractionation (TREF)

  • Cross-fractionation chromatography (CFC)

  • Crystallization elution fractionation (CEF)

  • Xylene solubles analysis (CRYSTEX)

  • Chemical composition distribution for quality control laboratories (CRYSTAF QC)

  • Preparative fractionation

  • Infrared detection for polyolefins

Markets Served

Polymer Char provides to the top polyolefin research laboratories worldwide, the leading petrochemical firms, and prestigious R&D Institutes or universities from all around the world. Its instruments are present in over 20 countries, within the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.

Major Products/Services

The company offers the broadest range of instruments and analytical services for polyolefin characterization, highlighting:

  • GPC-IR: the new generation of high temperature GPC, providing key-benefits, such as a separate column oven compartment, an automated in-line filtration, no solvent handling, no vials transfer, fully automated sample preparation, and multiple detectors (concentration and composition by IR4 or IR5 MCT, light scattering, and viscometer).

  • GPC One Software: the most modern and comprehensive software platform for high temperature GPC calculations.

  • CRYSTEX: automated and highly precise Xylene Solubles measurement with no solvents handling, including sample preparation and final cleaning.

  • HT-HPLC: new developments in separation technology for low crystallinity or amorphous polyolefins, such as TG-IC (thermal gradient interaction chromatography), solvent gradient IC, or 2 dimensional chromatography (HPLC × SEC).

Facilities

Polymer Char is headquartered in the Valencia Technology Park of Spain, boasting a new 20,000-square-foot state-of-the-art complex that includes its corporate offices, production factilities, and one of the most modern polyolefin R&D laboratories in the world. Together with its official distributors, the company supplies, trains, and supports customers worldwide.
