Measuring surface free energy – why test inks don’t tell the full truth 

One of the most commonly used methods to measure surface free energy is test inks/dyne pens. But they can often lead to inaccurate and unreliable results.

 

Join the Focus Webinar with Dr. Youssef Akil to ensure your future success in surface free energy measurements!

 

What you can expect

  • Learn how test inks work and why they often fail.
  • Understand why the contact angle method is the superior and far more accurate alternative and how you can use it.
