Once the solvent is evaporated off an FTIR analysis is performed on the solvent wash residue. If the material does not absorb infrared light a spectral scan cannot be obtained.

Further identification may be aided w1252 an Ash Test. Enabling astk to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. Computer programs are very helpful for comparing unknown spectral scans to those of known materials, but computer selected matches can be misleading. FTIR is the first logical step in identifying a polymer. Need help or have a question? Whether your business is local or global, we can ensure your products meet quality, health, environmental, safety, and social accountability standards for virtually any market around the world.

The mid-infrared region is from to wavenumbers, which equals wavelengths of 2.


The results are typically plotted as a spectrum with frequency on the X-axis and absorption on the Y-axis. E252 basket is empty. Find Similar Items This product falls into the following categories.

Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards.


This results in an FTIR spectrum without the minute details necessary to identify the unknown material. A typical infrared scan is generated in the mid-infrared region of the light spectrum. The better the match, the higher the certainty for a correct identification of the unknown polymer. 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.

Unknown spectral scans can be analyzed to determine the base material of the unknown by comparing their scan to spectral scans of known ee1252 that are stored in a computer-based library.

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 resulting spectral scan absorbance or transmittance is usually specific to a general class of material.

Computerized spectral searches can quickly compare an unknown spectrum to a very large number of spectra located in multiple databases in a very short period of time.

Samples the size of a single resin pellet can be scanned by reflective FTIR. FTIR can generate an infrared spectral scan of samples that e1225 infrared light. Contact us for a quote. The objective is to look for material differences. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities. 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.

We use cookies to make our website easier to use and to better understand your needs. This instrument transmits an infrared light through a sample and varies the wavelength of the light as it records how much light is qstm at each wavelength.


Poor at identifying minor components in mixtures or finding trace additives unless they can be separated prior to analysis. FTIR is also used for quality control of materials and for contamination analysis surface or internal. The resulting spectrum can be searched against a computerized database containing known e12522 for thousands of organic materials.

Identify the primary component of a plastic, rubber, or organic material. Matching the unknown infrared spectrum to known spectra can be done manually or with the help of a computerized program.

Certification Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. Assurance Enabling e11252 to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes.

Advanced Plastic and Material Testing, Inc. A computer program is used to subtract the peaks associated with the base polymer from the spectral scan and then an analysis of the remaining spectral scan is performed. The amount ee1252 contamination that can be detected depends on the spectral scans of the base polymer and the contaminant. A spectral scan of a reference material can be generated and stored in a spectral library database.

The faster, easier way to work with standards. However, an FTIR spectral scan alone should not be expected to identify asym 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. FTIR spectral subtractions are used to look for internal contamination in polymers. A solvent wash involves using a solvent that is nondestructive to the sample.

Assurance Testing Inspection Certification. Differences noted in a newly generated spectral scan could indicate a change in processing or a possible contamination problem. Computerized spectral matches to the unknown spectral scan are presented from best to worst with assigned certainty ratings.
