FTIR Qualitative Analyses for Quality Assurance and Quality Control of Protective Paints

10 February 2021 Institute of Materials, Malaysia|A

Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy equipped with attenuated total reflectance (ATR) has been used to monitor the batch-to-batch consistency and authentication of paint and coating materials. This technique is fast, reliable and requires little or no sample preparation. However, it requires skilled and trained analysts to analyze the overlapping absorption bands associated to the functional groups of the chemical mixtures in the paints or coatings.
