Material development is the most important step in conquering new areas of application and further developing existing plastic solutions. CellEQ helps you to understand your materials even better, to analyse them specifically under relevant influencing factors and to adapt the entire new and further material development efficiently to the later product.
You can analyse your material directly with existing equipment under later process conditions and optimise it accordingly. You save various iteration loops and occupancy times on process equipment in which the material has to be tested before the actual production or sale to the customer. This enables you to optimize your development cycles.
Improve not only your materials, but also the available information. With new and realistic values for your material data sheets and better processing recommendations for your customers, depending on the equipment used and their specific process limits. You reduce time-consuming consultations and increase your customers’ confidence in your products.
With innovative equipment, even the analysis of highly reactive materials is possible. Without the loss of relevant data. This allows you to extract the last percentages from your materials and at the same time keep an eye on their later application. In addition, you can leave out certain modules of the analysis equipment and save costs if they are not relevant to your developments.
CellEQ offers closed systems in which open or manual mixing of reactive materials, as it is necessary for many laboratory analyses, is not present. Only the material conditioning has to be filled with the individual components – similar to storage tanks in production. The time with open chemicals such as isocyanates, amine hardeners or similar is significantly reduced. Even systems that are otherwise subject to strict safety regulations (e.g. due to low vapour pressures, etc.) and whose analysis is difficult both in-house and externally as order analysis can be reproducibly analysed under process conditions.
In addition to the analysis of shrinkage and crosslinking behaviour under different process conditions, the cured test specimen can of course be demoulded and used for further analysis. In this way, the knowledge generated can be supplemented by other characteristic values (e.g. hardness, mechanics, thermal properties) and correlated.
