Unrivaled measurement speed for your manufacturing process

Understanding the properties of plastics and polymers is a critical step in optimizing their performance. Raman spectroscopy is widely used in the characterization of polymers and plastics and helps in determining their composition, which can include copolymers and blends, additives, antioxidants, and crystallinity.

The non-destructive nature of Raman measurements along with the molecular specificity of the spectra make it an optimal technique to monitor manufacturing processes in real-time.

Tornado’s Raman systems provide you with the speed and sensitivity to investigate all polymer types.
