Quality control of surfaces for good wettability and coating adhesion

Good wettability is prerequisite for good coating adhesion. Different types of surface treatments, such as plasma, laser texturing, or flame treatment are used to improve the wettability of the surface and subsequently the coating adhesion.

Despite a good process planning, adhesion problems sometimes occur. To catch the possible problems early on quality control processes for the treated surface should be implemented. As wettability is the most important factor indicating good adhesion, contact angle measurements are commonly used to ensure process quality. For quality control angle measurements offer fast, qualitative, user-independent and traceable method.

In this webinar you will hear,

  • Why contact angle measurements are so powerful tool for quality control
  • The most important aspects to consider from the instrument point of view
  • Examples how contact angle can be used for quality control purposes.

Who should attend?

  • People working in coating, printing, or other adhesion related processes
  • People working with plasma treatment, laser texturing or other surface treatment methods
  • People facing adhesion failures

Note that the same webinar is held twice but there will be a live Q&A session at the end of the both sessions. You can register through the form to both of the events and join the one suitable for you.
