Characterization of coating layer

  1. 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.

  3. 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.
