This paper documents the assay of a HT polymer with Teledyne Tekmar's HT3 static headspace instrument at 280°C. This temperature is above the glass transition temperature of the HT polymer at about 200°C and is below its melt temperature of 300°C. The HT polymer was tested to compare the VOC's and SVOC's released during headspace analysis to the current thermal desorption method.
