2018 Natpet Basic XRF Course

In keeping with ProLab’s tradition of sharing knowledge, Mr,Haitham Karim ( Service Manager) conducted the Basic XRF course at National Petroleum  Industries Co. (Natpet) – Yanbu, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from 22nd to 23rd Of July 2018 The class participants learnt about X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy during theoretical and practical hands-on training.

Polymer testing with a laboratory X-ray diffractometer

Are you interested in quality control of your polymer production? Are you doing structural characterization of new materials? Are you working with granulates, foils, fibers or 3D-printed solid objects? Then this webinar is for you!

X-ray diffraction (XRD) is one of the most important analytical techniques for polymers and composites characterization. It allows to get information on:

– Composition (qualitative and quantitative)

– Crystallinity

– Thermal stability

– Particle size (nano- to millimeter range)

– Orientation

– Distribution of pores & inclusions in solid objects

The Empyrean diffractometer allows you to combine various XRD methods of in situ and non-destructive testing on one laboratory platform.


  • Date:July 18 2018 – July 18 2018
  • Time:18:30 PM – 19:30 PM (Arabian standard Time)
  • Event type:Webinar – Live
  • Language:English
