Combustion IC for the simultaneous quantification of halogens in polymers

The principle

After inline pyrolysis of the polymer matrix, the gaseous combustion products are led into an oxidizing absorption solution that is then fed into an ion chromatograph for analysis.

Combustion IC can differentiate the halogen content of combustible samples and is thus ideally suited for determining if a material can be labeled «halogen-free» in accordance with the requirements of IEC 61249-2-21.
