Witton’s analytical laboratory provides 24-hour support to the manufacturing facilities; performing in-process analysis, as well as analysis of final products and raw materials, to ensure the highest possible quality of goods manufactured.

The QC Laboratory is well resourced with analytical equipment and techniques including Gas chromatography (GC), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Gell Permeation or Size Exclusion cChromatography (GPC / SEC), UV Spectrometry (UV), Fourier-Transform Infra-Red Spectroscopy (FTIR), Auto-titration systems, Karl Fischer, Viscometers, Colorimeter and Turbidity Meters, pH Meters and Flame Photometry.

We are skilled at following the course of polymer reactions by viscometry as well as measurement of the monomer levels and residual solvent levels by GC, HPLC and titrations. Similarly, we can measure the reactants in traditional reactions using HPLC, GC and titration.   

Extensive experience has been gained in the characterisation of polymers and prepolymers including Molecular Weight, Hardness, Viscosity, Colour, Turbidity, Residual monomer content, Total solid content, and Functionality including Isocyanate content (NCO) and acid value.

Our Analytical Scientists have wide background and extensive analytical experience and can assist in the transfer, validation and development of analytical techniques to support processes transferred for production at Witton Chemical Company.

Our partnerships with specialist laboratories provide access to a wide range of additional techniques that can be utilised when appropriate.
