Paper Abstract

Traditional Infrared sample supports are very moisture and/or light sensitive. Thus, this technique has been used little for investigating the effects of weathering and outdoor exposure on polymeric products and organic materials. Amorphous silicon is extremely chemically resistant and its electronic grade is infrared transparent in thin sheets. Properly polished, we have used silicon wafers for many years to evaluate coatings exposed in south Florida and to determine their mode of degradation under accelerated environmental conditions.
