Analysis of Composite Films using FTIR

Article

Spectroscopy

Composite films are mainly used for the packaging of food where many requirements have to be met in order to preserve taste and freshness of the product. Packaging needs to prevent water vapor from entering or leaving the packaging. FTIR Microscopy allows for the identification of different materials in composite films and can determine their distributions. Furthermore, defects in polymer matrix can also be localized and identified.
