    Abstract

    The application of advanced chemical characterization techniques to polymer manufacturing control systems has been developed to control composite/adhesive resin formulations. High-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC), viscoelastic rheological equipment, thermal analysis, and infrared spectroscopy are all used to evaluate the starting materials, the formulation process, and the final product. By developing the central system around these three manufacturing stages, chemical control of a system is possible. This control will, in turn, reduce our reliance on mechanical tests, which depend heavily on fabrication and handling techniques, to ensure quality control and consistency.
