SCiO can identify polymers, but with limitations.
Colors may change the IR spectrum, making it impossible to identify the plastic (for example, many black plastics are not only black in the visible spectrum, but also in IR, so practically they have no spectral signature for SCiO to measure and/or analyze).
SCiO can only provide user insights about materials if the corresponding data collection molecular sensing models are already collected, developed and exist in our database. These models can be developed by us, or alternatively by one of our users with a SCiO DevKit
