FTIR Chemical Analysis Services
Applied Technical Services performs FTIR chemical analysis. Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is one of many material identification tests our chemistry labs offer. FTIR chemical analysis is a quick, effective method of identification and characterization for sample polymers and other organic compounds. This method examines the spectral characteristics of unknown compounds, comparing the sample’s infrared emissions to our extensive library of reference materials. FTIR analysis can identify polymer types such as acetals, polycarbonates, nylons, polypropylenes, polyesters, and polyethylene.. Applied Technical Services is ISO 17025 (A2LA) accredited to perform FTIR analysis according to ATSM method E1252.
How The Method Works
FTIR chemical analysis works bypassing an IR beam through a thin sample. The various functional groups in the sample absorb some of the infrared waves at certain wavelengths while allowing other wavelengths of energy to pass through. The absorbance or transmittance of energy at these various wavelengths can then be used to Identify the specific material. We can compare these results to those in our comprehensive library of known materials. Our computer-aided searches are highly accurate, with thousands of known material readings at our disposal.
FTIR Analysis Uses and Benefits
FTIR spectroscopy identifies and characterizes unknown materials, additives, and contaminants. This method can also assist the confirmation of production materials or identify decomposition, oxidation, and uncured monomers during failure analysis. FTIR analysis can also help with material quality verification and quality control.
