Specialist lectures about quality assurance in pre-treatment and cleaning

Speakers from KRÜSS at SURFEX in Birmingham (UK) and parts2clean in Stuttgart (Germany)

KRÜSS will be contributing to the proceedings at two trade fairs dealing with quality assurance for cleaned and pre-treated surfaces in spring 2016.

Nicholas Hearn, our regional manager for the UK & France, will be holding a lecture at SURFEX in Birmingham (UK) concerning the determination of surface free energy (SFE) for analyzing wettability. During his talk he will point out the scientific stringency of the contact angle method and explain the basic restrictions in the use of the test ink method that is still used. The title of the lecture is therefore: Why test inks cannot tell the full truth about surface free energy. (Also see our Application Report on that subject.)

At parts2clean, Dr. Thomas Skrivanek, Technical Consultant at KRÜSS, will be introducing an extremely fast method of analyzing the cleaning quality of materials such as glass, plastics and metals. Under the title of Oberflächenreinheit gemessen in einer Sekunde, his German lecture describes contact angle measurements using our new Liquid Needle technology as a reliable and extremely efficient method of determining the SFE.

We would be pleased to meet you at the lectures or advise you on our trade fair stand:

  • SURFEX in Birmingham (UK), May 24 – 25, Hall 8, Stand B24
  • parts2clean in Stuttgart, May 31 -to June 2, Hall 5, Stand E39

We will keep you informed of other dates on our website at Exhibitions & Events.
