FTIR – Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
Analytical method for the identification and structure elucidation of plastics by means of molecular spectroscopy.
Method is used for: Material identification
Determination of atypical foreign substances on or in plastics.
characterisation of ageing and degradation processes
Detection of manufacturing defects
Detection of plasticisers and additives
The evaluation of the recorded IR spectra is carried out using already known comparison or sample spectra of known reference materials.
