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, but also in IR, so practically they have no spectral signature for SCiO to measure.
Nylons should be easier to detect, however that depends on the sample thickness.
