The Application of FT-NIR and Multivariate Analysis Methods for Characterization of an Industrial Mold Purging Process

August 01, 2019

Near infrared (NIR) reflection spectroscopy and multivariate analysis have been used to characterize materials relating to an injection mold barrel purging process. NIR was compared to attenuated total reflectance-mid-infrared (ATR-MIR) spectral measurements to assess whether the NIR measurement was relevant to either the surface or the bulk of the samples.
