Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy Analysis of Polymers and Plastics
Polymers and Plastics FTIR analysis capabilities and expertise.
FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) is a effective analytical tool for screening and profiling polymer samples. Intertek FTIR laboratory testing expertise provides valuable quantitative and qualitative analysis for polymer and plastic materials.
FTIR identifies chemical bonds in a molecule by producing an infrared absorption spectrum. The resulting spectra produces a profile of the sample, a distinctive molecular fingerprint that can be used to easily screen and scan samples for many different components. Polymer and Plastics FTIR is an effective analytical instrument for detecting functional groups and characterizing covalent bonding information. FTIR analytical testing and data interpretation for polymers are available globally
FTIR Polymer Analysis Solutions:
FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) is often used with other molecular spectroscopy techniques available at Intertek laboratories, including TGA, DRIFTS, FTIR/TGA, NMR, GC/MS, LC/MS, UV/Vis spectroscopy, NIR and Raman scattering. FTIR combined with these techniques provides significant complementary data regarding a polymer molecule's molecular structure. FTIR, when used together with these other analytical techniques, can prove very effective in the identification of unknown plastics and polymeric materials.
