Determination of coatings on nylon fibers by near-infrared spectroscopy


This Application Note demonstrates how NIR spectroscopy can be used to determine the content of coatings on nylon fibers, quickly and without requiring either sample preparation or the use of reagents. In order to suppress the effects arising from scattering on the surface coatings, one forms the second derivative spectra; the linear least-squares regression method is used to calculate the calibration function.
