Analytical Solutions for Analysis of Polymer Additives


Polymer additives are compounds added to plastic products to increase their durability and functionality. Although plastic products are used in a wide range of fields, including as packaging containers for pharmaceuticals and food, and as materials in transportation equipment and home appliances, the adoption of SDGs by the United Nations and the promotion of a circular economy is leading to an increased emphasis on recycling.

Polymer additives are an important element in the recycling of plastic products and ensuring the quality of recycled goods.

There is also an increasing focus on the leaching and transfer of additives from plastic products and their effects on the human body and environment, with some countries establishing regulations in this area.

This application book gathers together example analyses of polymer additives performed using Shimadzu products.
