On the basis of material-characteristic peaks and spectra the ingredients of a test specimen can be determined via a comprehensive spectra library.

Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy

Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) Spectroscopy

Possible applications:

  • Determination of the composition of plastic material such as mold mass of electronic components, tray material and tape & reel substances
  • Detection of the water percentage of plastic materials
  • Analysis of volatile components and substances
  • Determination, evaluation and comparison of the aging status of organic materials

Within the scope of comprehensive cooperation with technical colleges and universities we developed an economical procedure for the analysis and evaluation of organic materials and substances in connection with our services for long-term conservation of electronic components. On the basis of outgassing and degradation processes occurring during conservation and storage it was our goal to cyclically evaluate the organic substances of components regarding the aging resistance and changes during storage and conservation processes.

Corresponding examples are mold material of electronic components, plastic foil (DryPackfoil) and mainly the synthetics of component containers (trays, tapes).

Result is a Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR-Spectroscopy) with a unique database system developed by ourselves, enabling the generation of a qualitative statement and comparability with respect to the used materials within shortest time.

On the basis of material-characteristic peaks and spectra the ingredients of a test specimen can be determined via a comprehensive spectra library. Aging processes or water inclusions can be detected based on intensity alterations of the single peaks.

When comparing the spectra in a specified period of one year for instance, an indicator for the progression of aging processes in the material is provided.
