FTIR Spectroscopy

Fourier Transformed infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) is a technique for identification of organic materials. The technique is fast and easy to use if you have an unknown substance and want to compare it with a reference. A database also enables the identification of unknown substances.

Typical applications:

  • Identification of polymers
  • Identification of foreign particles, fibers etc.
