Product News: MACHEREY-NAGEL Announces New TLC Product ALUGRAM Xtra

07 May 2010

MACHEREY-NAGEL presents its new TLC product ALUGRAM® Xtra. ALUGRAM® Xtra SIL G aluminium sheets are covered with unmodified silica from own manufacturing. This new product features:

• outstanding wettability (even for 100 % aqueous visualisation reagents)
• easy and perfect cutting (no flaking of silica during every kind of cutting process)
• excellent separation efficiency and reproducibility from lot to lot

The newly developed binder is a highly polymeric product, which is stable in almost all organic solvents and resistant towards aggressive visualisation reagents. The binder system for ALUGRAM® Xtra is also completely stable in purely aqueous eluents. Thus, these TLC aluminium sheets offer a broad range of applications.
