INFRARED FOURIER TRANSFORM SPECTROSCOPY IN THE COATINGS INDUSTRY-1

The use of Fourier transform spectrometers to measure IR spectra is becoming more widespread, and it seems likely that the high sensitivity, speed, and versatility of these instruments can be used to advantage in the coatings industry. In order to point out the potential of the methods, the principles of Fourier spectroscopy are briefly outlined and some exploratory measurements of IR spectra of clear coatings on metals are described. Experimental program is described, experimental arrangement explained, several IR spectra are presented and discussed in terms of practical applications of method developed for studies of paints and protective coatings.
