Canagrosa includes IR-FTIR spectroscopy in its portfolio of advanced services.

Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (IR-FTIR) is an analytical technique widely used in the laboratory to study the chemical composition of materials. This spectroscopic technique is based on the interaction of infrared light identifying the molecular vibrations of the material in question in the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum, something that can be interpreted as its "fingerprint". It is important to note that among the advantages of FTIR are its high sensitivity, speed of data acquisition and ability to perform quantitative and qualitative analysis.

At the industrial level, the application of IR-FTIR spectroscopy has multiple applications and plays a crucial role in improving the quality, safety and performance of materials, contributing to efficient design and maintenance. Among its most common uses in the aerospace industry are the analysis of composites materials, quality control in manufacturing processes, identification of coatings and paints, and analysis of sealants and adhesives.

 In Canagrosa we currently analyze solid and liquid samples of application in the advanced technical reception of materials (raw materials, monitoring of manufacturing processes, verification of authenticity, and analysis of containers and packaging).

We also perform IR-FTIR analysis of oils and lubricants for the MRO (Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul) industry, detecting contaminants, degradation and changes in chemical composition that could affect the performance of engines and components. Likewise, this technique is also used in the investigation of fuels and fluids. In this case, through FTIR analysis it is possible to detect and identify impurities and ensure the quality of the materials used.

If you need to identify any type of material or chemical composition, study its molecular structure and/or monitor chemical reactions, do not hesitate to contact us. Our team will help you to clarify any doubts and solve your needs.
