EDX-FTIR Contaminant Finder/Material Inspector
With the data comparison function, which calculates the degree of matching between the actual measured data and the data registered in the library, the software can be used for countermeasures against "silent change"*1 and for other confirmation tests.

Data Comparisons for PCV examination
From the data comparison, the degree of matching between the PVC examination object and the standard product is 0.8506. Lead (Pb) and acrylic were detected from the EDX and FTIR data, which were not detected in the standard product.
Accordingly, it is surmised that the examination object contains components different to those in the standard product.
