Instrumental paper and deposit analysis
Know-how abouts pektroscopical measuring processes still is some special. PTS applys this modern analytic in its laboratories to analysepapers and deposits.
Fourier-Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy
FTIR spectroscopy makes it possible to chemically identify organic compounds such as resins, adhesives, binders and additives, for example, In addition, the ATR microscope is capable of characterising individual fibres and very small specks (approx. 100 Ám x 100 Ám).
Near-Infrared (NIR) spectroscopy
The NIR laboratory spectrometer is an FT spectrometer whose detector operates in a wave-length range from 830 to 2500 nm. This measuring technique is used to obtain non-destructively results from qualitative and quantitative analysis within minutes. One prerequisite for such analysis is appropriate procedure data sets. It is currently possible e.g. to determine fillers, sizing agents or even coating binders.
The optimisation of product quality and the creation of stable production processes whilst at the same time reducing costs and customer complaints can be rendered much easier by the systematic analysis of specks in papers, deposits, paper components, coating components, defects, coatings, chemical additives, etc.
