Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy: Attenuated Total Reflectance (FTIR-ATR)
Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy instrumentation can identify the primary organic bonds within a plastic, rubber or other organic material. Using attenuated total reflectance (ATR), we can determine the family of your material.
If coatings or additives are present, FTIR can be supplemented with specific gravity measurement, energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS) and cross-section examination to further identify your material. Contact us for more information or a quote.
