Bruker and Symphony Environmental Sign Agreement on XRF Technology
Bruker and Symphony Environmental sign agreement on X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) Technology enabling identification of the components of plastic.
After a one year cooperative development, the two companies have signed a contract for the exclusive supply of Bruker's X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) taggant technology to Symphony for the identification of pro-degradant, anti-microbial and anti-fungal additives in plastic. This multi-year agreement will give Symphony and their customers the ability to unambiguously determine that plastic contains the proper components to ensure that it will perform as intended. Bruker's patented technology is contained in a lightweight handheld XRF analyzer, which can be taken into the field to perform measurements at almost any location in the world.
The Symphony d2w pro-degradant improves the speed at which plastic packaging will degrade, and in combination with the Bruker XRF technology allows rapid proof that the pro-degradant is present, as required by law in many countries now, or that d2p anti-microbial additive is present.
