  • Good Afternoon,
    I am Watie, I would like to ask you, at your university (UTHM) do a FTIR Test for public or for the use of manufacturing companies?

    In my manufacturing we produces plastic packaging, we used chemical such as EA(Ethyl Acetate), MEK(Methyl Ethyl Ketone),Toluene,
    IPA(Iso-propyl Acetate) in process and our plastic is multilayer, first layer we used PET FILM (12Um) for printing department and second layer we used LLDPE FILM(25Um) for lamination department.
    We found there have an odor chemical present on plastic packaging (thinner), we want to identify where the odor came. And I hope that you can provide to me result analysis for this test. hope you have a time for give me a feedback for my question.
