Improve your coating process with high-class instruments for wettability, surfactant content, and foam behavior

We invite you to our booth (Hall 5, Stand 327) where our highlights focus on quality control throughout the coating process.

Optimize wettability: Measure the quality of pretreated and coated parts

Determine the wettability of your pretreated or coated material in no time at all using our Mobile Surface Analyzer – MSA with its Liquid Needle dosing technology.

The Liquid Needle turns the once laborious contact angle technique into an ultra-fast quality control method. The MSA uses it to measure the surface free energy (SFE), which is a perfect indicator for the wettability of the surface by aqueous or organic liquids and far more reliable than test inks. Measurements using templates and automated dosing of test liquids ensure operator-independent results, which can be automatically evaluated using predefined limits.

Our MSA analyzes samples of any size, such as automobile bodies. It provides accurate values even for vertical, overhead, and slightly convex samples. The handy instrument can also detect residues of cleaning agents and is capable of doing 1,000 material tests per cartridge charge.

Improve your coating liquid: Monitor the wetting agent content in electroplating baths

Capture the surfactant content of your coating or etching bath within seconds using surface tension with our Bubble Pressure Tensiometer – BPT Mobile.

The quality inspector using the BPT Mobile knows immediately whether the bath is okay thanks to an ad-hoc evaluation. Moreover, for pro-active adjustment of the bath, it shows the change of results over time.

The instrument, which is independent from the grid or a computer, has a touch display that makes using it as intuitive as a smartphone. It lies well in the hand and is especially easy and safe to operate thanks to the large-sized interface. Programmed measurement templates and the fact that the instrument is insensitive to changing immersion depths provide for user-independent quality control.

Prevent foam: Analyze the foam-forming properties of your coating liquid

Measure the foaming behavior of your coating liquid and the foam stabilty with our Dynamic Foam Analyzer – DFA100 and gather valuable information for the prevention of foam and resulting quality issues.

Using software-controlled foaming-up by sparging or stirring, the DFA100 precisely captures foam height and decay dynamics. Thanks to the high frame rate of the optical detection, the instrument covers a wide range from stable to quickly decaying foam. Next to ease of use and fast cleaning, what makes the DFA100 ideal for the daily quality routine is the incorporation of templates that provide for user-independent, exactly repeatable measurement procedures.
