ATS performs FTIR analysis (Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) as a method to positively identify polymers, organic compounds, and — in some cases — inorganic materials.
FTIR — The First Step in Material Evaluation
FT-IR analysis generates unique combinations of absorption peaks reflecting energies absorbed by chemical bonds present in the material, acting as a finger print of the material. By comparing IR spectrum of unknown material with thousands of available IR spectra in IR libraries, an unknown material can be quickly identified. The results of FT-IR analysis lay the foundation for other material testing techniques.
