Thermal decomposition of nitrile gloves by sample observation STA-MS

TA-2028: Thermal decomposition of nitrile gloves by sample observation STA-MS



Nitrile gloves are widely used as disposable gloves for medical, nursing care, food processing, and others. It is used as an alternative to natural rubber gloves against latex allergies. Recently, the demand for nitrile gloves has rapidly increased, as it is used not only in medical and food-related fields but also in food and food outlets, retail stores and homes as a means of preventing infection. It is well known for its excellent strength, elasticity and chemical resistance, as well as resistant to piercing and pulling. In this application, we analyze the evolved gases from nitrile gloves.

TG-DTA is a hyphenated technology generally referred to as simultaneous thermal analysis (STA).



DSC with industry-first self-diagnostic feature and industry's highest temperature range

DSC is a thermal analysis technique that quantifies the amount of energy in a reaction.

Quantifies the energy changes in reactions such as melting, transition, crystallization and glass transition temperature.

DSC8271 is a high-temperature type DSC with a maximum temperature of 1,500°C.

TMA is the measurement of a change in dimension or mechanical property of the sample while it is subjected to a controlled temperature program.


The compact humidity generator (HUM-1) is connected to the TG-DTA for measurements under constant relative humidity water vapor atmosphere.


TMA/HUM measures change in dimension or mechanical property of a sample while subjected to a temperature regime under water vapor atmosphere with a constant relative humidity.

In TG-FTIR, gases evolved by volatilization or thermal decomposition are qualitatively analyzed, which allows you to track changes in the generated amount along with the temperature change.
