Hi everyone,

can anybody suggest a characterization technique for a coating layer.

i have a polymer substrate, then coated with polymer binder, than coated with metal.

if i using FTIR i only obtain spectra for organic which is polymer.
can i use XRD, XPS ...?

any suggestion with good explanation are most welcome.

:)

Hi, You can try finding out the elemental composition of the metal layer, e.g. by EDX or XRF. IR with Raman is fine for the organic layers.
