Contact Angle: Decisive Surface Data from a Single Test

Formulation

Obtain decisive data without running expensive tests to assess surface roughness, uniformity of treatment, release agents residues, weak boundary layers, wettability, printability, over treatment…

(Re)Discover the range of information that can be extracted from Contact Angle Measurements, a simple & far-too-often misused test.

 

Today, most people measure contact angle as if their surface were ideal and they end up with not really reproducible data, which limit the interest to an estimation of the surface tension…
But with your current equipment and an improved approach to contact angle measurements, you can obtain insightful data about surface roughness & uniformity. Join this course and:
