Drying for Moisture Sensitive Materials
Pelletized samples are placed in a vacuum oven or fluid bed dryer for the customer specified time and temperature. Small samples are taken at routine time intervals and moisture is measured by way of Karl Fisher titration. Specimens are continually monitored to ensure the material reaches the desired target moisture.

Some polymers are moisture sensitive, meaning they absorb moisture. This moisture content can adversely affect the finished molded product. It is critical that samples be dried to the proper moisture level to produce meaningful test data that accurately represents the material.
