This instrument reportedly provides more information about the processing characteristics of resinsdata that previously required two or more instruments at much higher cost. The APA 2000 Advanced Polymer Analyzer was developed by Alpha Technologies, a maker of laboratory instrumentation for rubbers and other polymers, which became a business unit of Dynisco LLC last year. According to Tom Mlinar, Alphas v.p., of sales and services, the updated APA 2000 is unique in its ability to fully characterize polymers in a single test, measuring the dynamic mechanical properties before, during and after cure (for thermosets) or melt solidification. Plastics processors and compounders can simulate exact process conditions to determine the impact of processing on part quality and performance. Test capabilities include isothermal cure, controlled stress or strain, linear or nonlinear temperature ramps, temperature sweeps, frequency sweeps, and strain sweeps. Mlinar says that to obtain the breadth of information achievable with this one instrument would typically require tests on a Mooney rheometer plus a DMA (dynamic mechanical analyzer) and probably also a capillary rheometer. The APA 2000 is about twice the cost of a typical Mooney or capillary rheometer, yet half the cost of a DMA. The APA 2000 has a special temperature-control system, a sealed and pressurized sample cavity, and a unique sample handling technique, all of which are said to contribute to highly repeatable measurements of viscosity, gel time, cure time, crystallization rate, final shear modulus, and glass-transition temperature (Tg). The unit is also reportedly simple to use, with even the most complex tests programmed and data retrieved easily via the systems multi-tasking operator interface. Minimal sample preparation time is required and testing is initiated by a single keystroke.
