Ageing of materials: in order to study a material behaviour over time and different thermal conditions it can be degraded (thermally, by photons, by radioactive radiations and so on) to simulate its ageing. It is then essential to measure the many VOCs emitted simultaneously by the material in a dynamic, exhaustive and quantitative way; to better understand the mechanisms of this degradation.
The BTrap coupled with an oven.
Emissions and adsorptions of a material:
the materials degassing is partly responsible for indoor air bad quality in restricted areas (building, laboratory) or confined spaces (submarine, car interior). This therefore require innovative reformulation of your materials. The BTrap enables comprehensive measurement of the emissions of a material (e.g. glues, paints, food packaging, putties) to simply and easily characterize the toxicity linked to its lifecycle.
- Adsorptions: new techniques of air pollution control are based on the adsorption properties of materials or their coatings. Similarly, the BTrap measurement enables assessing the efficacity of those methods.
Repurposing of a material: the BTrap can be placed on an assembly, pilot or a process line.This is in the aim of characterizing/controlling the repurposing -energetic for instance- of a material: biomass products, wastes, water treatment plants sludges and so on.
