|The Coatings Technology Library
contains digitized spectra of 2,507 materials commonly used in the coatings industry,
including polymers, resins, vehicles, pigments, extenders, acrylic monomers, radiation
curable monomers, fungicides, mildewcides, inhibitors/stabilizers, solvents and other
additives. The samples were in the form of capillary films or melts on KBr, cast films on
KRS-5, or pressed KBr pellets. The Coatings Technology Library is recommended by the
Federation of Societies for Coatings Technology.
Coatings Technology Library is paired with the revised edition of An Infrared Spectroscopy
Atlas for the Coatings Industry, published by the FSCT in 1991. Spectra for this library
were collected by the Chicago Society for Coatings Technology. The spectra were acquired
at 2 cm-1 resolution using Thermo Scientific FT-IR spectrometers.
