Good wetting and adhesion are decisive for later product quality when bonding, printing and coating polymers. Our contact angle measuring instruments carry out an important service in enabling the required product properties to be achieved, for example by surface pre-treatment.
In plastics manufacturing, our measuring methods help to improve dispersions of powders and polymers in compounds and the mixability of polymers in blends. Our instruments characterize fiber coatings and the wetting and adhesion between fibers and matrix for the quality control and development of fiber reinforced materials.
The optimization of dispersibility in latices and the biocompatibility of contact lenses are further important applications for our measuring equipment in the polymer industry.
