Diffuse reflectance FT-IR (DRIFT) has been applied to the characterization of surface modified Kevlar 29 and 49 fibers. The surface modifications include amination and sulfonation. The standard DRIFT experiment has been modified in the manner first described by Koenig et.al. 1 who used a KBR overlayer to enhance surface functional IR bands. The results from the DRIFT experiment have been correlated with those from a standard dye test. The results for degree of modification are in reasonable agreement between the two measurement approaches. However, the dye experiment is time-consuming and inconvenient. DRIFT has been shown to be useful in characterizing modified Kevlar surfaces in as-used conditions.
