Veryst adds FTIR microscope to materials analysis lab

January 20, 2020

Veryst is excited to announce that we have expanded our materials analysis capabilities by adding a Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) microscope to our materials analysis lab. FTIR is used to characterize the molecular structure of organic materials, and FTIR microscopy is especially useful in the analysis of plastics, adhesives, composites, and other polymeric materials. Veryst uses FTIR microscopy for:

  • Identifying organic materials and chemical impurities for failure analysis and forensic investigations
  • Analyzing environmental degradation of polymers
  • Developing and executing accelerated aging protocols
  • Characterizing curing kinetics of thermal and UV-curing adhesives
  • Mapping interdiffusion of polymer interfaces
  • Establishing structure-property relationships in organic materials


Learn how Veryst uses FTIR microscopy to analyze the joining of thermoplastics.
