Detailed QA/QC analysis and characterization of materials, coatings and surfaces is increasingly important due to a combination of advances in material science, and the increased number of global suppliers. A new generation of handheld FTIR analyzers is now available for assuring the quality and performance of these materials.

These portable FTIR analyzers can be used directly at-site, eliminating the need to remove a piece of the object to send to a lab. Thus, handheld FTIR measurements can be truly non-destructive. These new analyzers also have features which make them usable in the laboratory for both method development and routine use. Their performance permits easy method development and allows measurement of both surfaces and powdered/ granulated materials either in lab or at site.
