A variety of techniques were used including, Optical Microscopy, Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Pyrolysis Gas Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (PYMS) and Liquid Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (LCMS). The microscopy techniques were used to examine the separate layers and measure the thickness of the layers. The remaining techniques were used to identify the polymer types and additives found in the sample.
