Infrared Spectral Analysis of Waste Pet Samples

Full Text PDF


There are fifteen waste PET bottles and a commercial grade ABS was collected from local supplier of Chidambaram town. The ABS was used to study the mechanical properties of PET blend composites. This study was performed by FT-IR spectroscopy. From the characteristics infrared stretching bands the mechanical properties of samples were discussed
