What are polymers?
Polymers are large molecules that contain repeating units. Joined together they form really long chains. Polymers can be natural or synthetic. At ERIKS we have decades of experience in the field of polymer testing, such as the FTIR analysis.
Polymer sealing solutions testing lab
FTIR analysis yields a spectrum in which every peak represents a particular chemical compound. This spectrum shows what polymer type a material is. This method is an effective way to use as a fingerprint to demonstrate the consistency of materials. It shows very quickly whether spectra change over time.
