You can’t buy anything today without a package. Think about it. Blister packs, cellowraps, shrink wraps, barrier bags, vapor films, UV-blocking films, heat-blocking films, tinted plastics, filled polymers, biodegradable bags, structural plastics, laminated films, moisture barrier films ….. ad infinitum (literally).

Industries that manufacture plastics or utilize plastics need to characterize these plastics. Classical physical and optical tests, or chromatographic techniques (many of them have been standard methods for years), have the potential to be slow, inaccurate due to operator error, or very expensive. Spectroscopic procedures have been accepted techniques for many years, but changes in technology have all but eliminated the economical, reliable and classic instruments from the market.
