Ceram has invested in a Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) system that provides identification of compounds and chemical functionality in the near-surface region of materials.

Part of Ceram’s analytical suite, the system will also form a critical part of the company’s problem-solving capability, which includes SEM, DSIMS, ToF-SIMS, XPS and 3DP.

FTIR provides detailed information on the bond structures within compounds and has numerous applications, from identification of solid or liquid organic and inorganic compounds and identification of polymers, polymer blends, rubbers, adhesives and coatings to mapping of coating thicknesses and examination of microstructures.

This will allow Ceram to offer clients confirmation of consistency of raw and finished manufacturing materials, surface modification and sample weathering studies, analysis of unknown solvents and detergents and identification of manufacturing impurities and defects.
