    Infrared absorption spectrophotometry with a diamond cell sample holder is routinely employed in our laboratory for the examination of plastic wire insulation. The determination of the type of polymer used as insulation on electric blasting cap leg wire allows the manufacturer of the cap to be identified [1].
