The resulting spectral scan absorbance or transmittance is usually specific to a general class of material. Samples, which can be easily tested by reflective FTIR, include polymer pellets, parts, opaque samples, fibers, powders, wire coatings, and e152. Inspection Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. 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 mid-infrared region is from to wavenumbers, which equals wavelengths of 2. 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.

The objective is to look for material differences. Accept and continue Learn more about the cookies we use and how to change your settings. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities.



Materials with similar organic bonds but different molecular weights such as hydrocarbon oil, paraffin wax, low density polyethylene, and high density polyethylene can have asttm spectra. We use cookies to make our website easier to use and to better asgm your needs. Computerized spectral matches to the unknown spectral scan are presented from best to worst with assigned certainty ratings.

Send us a request Need help or have a question? A stored reference scan will allow all future material scans to be compared back to the same earlier scan. FTIR can generate an infrared spectral scan of samples that absorb infrared light.

Take the smart route to manage medical device compliance.

FTIR is the first logical step in identifying a polymer. Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. 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.

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. Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 42, people in 1, locations in over countries.

Differences noted in a newly generated spectral scan could indicate a change in processing or a possible contamination problem. Poor at identifying minor components in mixtures or finding trace additives unless they can be separated prior to analysis. The better the match, the higher the certainty for a correct identification of the unknown polymer. You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or Assurance Testing Inspection Certification.

This results in an FTIR spectrum without the minute details necessary to identify the unknown material. A solvent wash involves using a solvent that is nondestructive to the sample.

Further identification e11252 be aided by DSC. You may find similar items within these categories by selecting from the choices below:. The results are typically plotted as a spectrum with frequency on the X-axis and absorption on the Y-axis.

Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. 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.
