The Sagitto system can be used to identify plastics, measure paint coating thickness, and help determine the curing point of epoxy resin mixes.
This demonstrates a classification model for plastic polymers, using near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy data. As you can see from the graph at right, different types of plastic polymers have quite different absorption spectra in the 900nm - 1700nm wavelength range. Sagitto is able to use these differences to build very accurate classification models, using sophisticated machine learning techniques.

Sagitto's miniature NIR provides a very rapid, portable and accurate technique for identifying the composition of paints and liquid polymer coatings, as well as measuring their thickness.
Sagitto's miniature NIR provides a very rapid, portable and accurate technique for measuring the curing process of epoxy resin polymer mixtures. Below we show the change in absorbance spectra of two different formulations of Araldite™.
