Testing wetting and surface free energy professionally and safely

A certificate course for MSA and Liquid Needle users

You, as a user of our instruments with your practical applications, are the center of attention in our certificate course. Get the best from your measurements, optimize your processes and reduce downtime. On completing this one-day course you will receive a KRÜSS certificate and thus become a professional tester of wetting and surface free energy.

The course has been developed together with our specialists from the application, technical service and scientific departments. On successful completion, you will not only be able to carry out precise contact angle measurements with your Mobile Surface Analyzer – MSA and the Liquid Needle, but also recognize erroneous measurements and avoid possible technical errors. In addition, you will be able to handle your instrument and the chemicals used in safety.

Course objectives:

  • Acquire the basic technical principles for precise contact angle measurement with MSA and Liquid Needle
  • Calculate and evaluate surface free energy (SFE)
  • Recognize and rectify possible application errors
  • Handle diiodomethane safely
  • Check surface pre-treatment (e.g. plasma or corona; cleaning)
  • Avoid possible technical errors
  • Get support and advice for your applications

Our know-how for your applications

Our expert team brings extensive practical experience from the fields of science and technology and combines the best of both worlds in this seminar. The course is tailor-made for users of the MSA and the Liquid Needle. It provides necessary knowledge about contact angle measurement, surface free energy and surface treatment, the principle of the Liquid Needle as well as technical aspects of the instruments, thus qualifying you as a professional wetting and surface free energy tester. Together with our seminar team, you will develop solutions for various participants’ application examples and extend your capabilities with current industrial best practice.

Working together for certification

During the hands-on session, you will apply the knowledge you have acquired and, in this way, generate new approaches to a solution. In the laboratory, you will be guided by our specialists in small groups, tackle current problems, and experience how typical errors in daily use can be easily avoided.

The practical part of this one-day seminar with a maximum of 24 participants will take place in small groups with a maximum of 3 participants and will conclude with the award of a certificate.
