Differences noted in a newly generated spectral scan could indicate a change in processing or a possible contamination problem. FTIR can generate an infrared spectral scan of samples that absorb infrared light. Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. A typical infrared scan is generated in the mid-infrared region of the light spectrum.

The objective is to look for material differences. FTIR can identify the difference between materials, such as polypropylene and polyethylene, which are made of only carbon and hydrogen but have different types of bonds between the elements. Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. However, an FTIR spectral scan alone should not be expected to identify the type of Nylon or Polyester, identify a Polypropylene or Acetal as a homopolymer or copolymer, or determine whether the Polyethylene is a high density or low density material.


Identify the primary component of a plastic, rubber, or organic material. This website is best viewed with browser version of up to Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or Firefox 3.

Samples, which can be easily tested by reflective FTIR, include polymer pellets, parts, opaque samples, fibers, powders, wire coatings, and liquids. A stored reference scan will allow all future material scans to be compared back to the same earlier scan. Find Similar Items This product falls into the following categories.

Computer programs are very helpful for comparing unknown spectral scans to those of known materials, but computer selected matches can be misleading. Certification Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards.

You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or Materials with similar organic bonds but different molecular weights such as hydrocarbon oil, paraffin wax, low density polyethylene, and high density polyethylene can have similar spectra.

This instrument transmits an infrared light through a sample and varies the wavelength of the light as it d1252 how much light is absorbed at each wavelength. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities. A spectral scan of a reference material can be generated and stored in a spectral satm database.


FTIR is the first logical step in identifying a polymer. Matching the unknown infrared spectrum to known spectra can be done manually or with the help of a computerized program. Materials with large quantities of carbon carbon black or carbon fiber are difficult to obtain a usable spectral scan from because carbon strongly absorbs infrared light in a broad range of frequencies.

Samples the size of a single resin pellet can be scanned by reflective FTIR. Search all products by. Unknown spectral scans can be analyzed to determine the base material of the unknown by comparing their scan to spectral scans of known materials that are stored in a computer-based library.

Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards. Please download Chrome or Firefox or view our browser tips. The results are typically plotted as a spectrum with frequency on the X-axis and absorption on the Y-axis.

A skilled FTIR analyst is needed to examine the computer selected spectral matches to ensure that sample identifications are both accurate and complete. The resulting spectrum can be searched against a computerized database containing known spectra for thousands of organic asgm. FTIR is also used for quality control of materials and for contamination analysis surface or internal. The amount of contamination that can be detected depends on the spectral scans of the base polymer and the contaminant.

Obvious surface contamination of polymers can be analyzed by normal reflective FTIR because the infrared beam only enters a few microns into the sample surface. The faster, easier way to work with standards.
