NEW THF Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) system!
We are excited to announce a new addition to our infrastructure with the integration of our new Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) system of Agilent. This new SEC system utilizes tetrahydrofuran (THF) as the mobile phase, combined with a highly sensitive Refractive Index (RI) detector.
This THF-SEC is meticulously calibrated using Polystyrene (PS) standards, empowering us to determine the molecular weight of polymers within a wide range, from 200 up to 400,000 Da.
Our team at PTG/e is highly experienced with polymers of all kinds. By expanding our existing SEC systems line-up with this THF-SEC, we can now tackle molecular weight determinations of almost any polymeric material with utmost efficiency and reliability.

NEW Climate chamber for tensile testing!
We are excited to announce a significant expansion of our testing capabilities at PTG/e! With the recent installation of our ESPEC SH-242 climate chamber, we are now able to offer you precise and reliable mechanical properties tests across a wide range of temperatures and humidity levels.
Temperature Range: Our climate chamber enables testing at temperatures ranging from -20 to +150 °C. This broad range ensures accurate simulation of diverse operating conditions, from freezing cold to scorching heat.
Humidity Range: We can also assess mechanical properties within a humidity range of 30 to 95 %RH, specifically at temperatures from +20 to +80 °C. This capability allows us to evaluate the impact of moisture on the performance of materials.
If you are looking for a partner to evaluate the mechanical properties of your materials, please feel free to reach out, to discuss how our enhanced testing capabilities can benefit your projects.
PTG/e is sponsoring Brightlands Polymer Days 2021
Brightlands Polymer Days 2021 is a scientific conference in the field of polymer science and technology. It is organised by the Belgian Polymer Group, KNCV Macromolecular Division, PTN, the former Dutch Polymer Days and Brightlands Rolduc Polymer Conference. These partners have joined forces to start a new scientific conference where academia, from student to Nobel Prize winner, and industry can meet.
More information about this conference can be found on https://polymerdays.brightlands.com/about-the-conference/
