30° specular reflection accessory takes on a new dimension
when it is configured in an inverted orientation and used
with disposable glass sample cards coated with low emissivity
coating (Low E Sample Cards). Low E Sample Cards are inexpensive
and disposable. The low E coating is almost totally reflective.
Samples can be placed on the disposable Low E Cards which
reflect the instrument beam through the sample using the
inverted 30° specular reflection accessory. By inverting
the sample stage, liquid samples are
prevented from dripping onto the mirrors in the accessory.
This accessory is great for polymer films, glue, epoxy,
paint and varnish which might contaminate a liquid cell.
The Low E Cards can be mounted in ICLs Roto-Film
polymer film maker to form consistent thin films and then
mounted in the inverted 30° Specular Reflection Accessory
for analysis. For those preferring pure transmission analysis,
