TWI now has a state-of-the-art contact angle and surface energy measurement system in its extensive range of analytical and testing equipment.
Applications of contact angle and surface free energy analysis include:
Detection and characterisation of surface treatments and their effects Characterisation of new surfaces Investigation of adhesion properties Testing of surface purity Quality control for coatings and platings Measurement of cleaning behaviour of surfactant solutions Characterisation of printability of surfaces Determination of wetting characteristics of plastics, glass, metals, solders, platings and electronic components leads
TWI's practical, hands-on experience of adhesion and adhesive bonding in industry over the past thirty years is probably second-to-none. We've worked in virtually every sector, including aerospace, automotive, electronics, powergeneration, marine, medical, mining and the oil and gas industries.
