Technique to Use for What Materials Analysis

Always wanted to know about which analytical techniques that are most suitable for what types of materials characterization? Join our webinar by Dr Nicholas Norberg who is an application specialist in Malvern Panalytical’s supply center. He discusses methodologies like NIR and XRD in the context of stringent monitoring of low quantity respirable silica and asbestos – from as low as 0.1%. He will be able to provide more insight on the plus points and limitations for the identification, quantification and adherence to EPA and ISO norms.

Join this webinar if you want to have a better general understanding of the materials characterization methodologies. Join us too if you are a supplier and manufacturer, as it is an obligation to ensure safe working conditions for employees and safe-to-use products for consumers. Related companies include government agencies dealing with environmental monitoring, mine sites, cement plants or product manufacturing including construction, paint, paper, insulation, vehicle parts, cosmetics and more.

Agenda

Control of respirable silica and asbestos is of paramount importance for any business dealing with mineralogical materials. At every step in the process, from a mine site to the final product manufacturing (construction materials, paint, paper, insulation, vehicle parts, health care and cosmetics products, etc.) it is an obligation of a raw materials supplier and a manufacture not only to ensure safe work conditions for the employees, but also to guarantee safe-to-use products.

During the webinar, application specialist in Malvern Panalytical’s supply center, Dr Nicholas Norberg, will discuss in detail on the sources of exposure to respirable silica and asbestos and the regulatory norms for companies to comply with. These norms include ISO 22262-3 which requires quantitative analysis of asbestos down to 0.1% He will also provide more insight to the various methodologies that can be used for the identification and quantification and more importantly, which methods provide the most sensitivity and accurate results towards stringent norm compliance.

This webinar is also useful for individuals who want to learn more about the applications of various research techniques involving NIR, XRD and more for their work. And which techniques are better to engage for specific instances of low limits of detection.
