The #1 Dyne Pen Alternative

The Surface Analyst is the ideal alternative to dyne solutions; providing a fast, easy, accurate, quantitative, and non-destructive inspection resulting in a much more seamless quality control process for use on the factory floor.

Check out the video below, to see a demonstration of the ease and accuracy of the Surface Analyst.



The Downfall of Dyne Solutions, Not Dyne Measurements

These are just a few disadvantages of using dyne solutions:

  • Subjective testing means results may vary based on each user
  • Dyne chemicals are destructive to the parts being tested, resulting in scrap
  • Results are often unrepeatable and unreliable
  • High user skill needed to perform test and interpret results
  • Dyne solutions are solvents that can remove contaminants from the surface during the test, resulting in readings that are not accurately reflecting the quality of the surface (i.e. they provide false positives, indicating that an actually contaminated surface is clean)
  • Dyne chemicals can be teratogenic, potentially leading to birth defects in pregnant users
  • Dyne solutions should not be used on metal, but are often used in this way
  • Dyne pens with felt tips easily pick up contamination from one surface and transfer it to another surface if that same pen is used more than once


Manufacturers haven’t had an alternative testing method to dyne inks, until now!

Benefits of the Surface Analyst

  • The device can be used in any environment, both the lab and the manufacturing floor2001-film-300x214
  • Measurements can be done on materials of all kinds
  • Harmless to the user
  • Non-destructive to the part being tested, saving in scrap
  • Provides an accurate and quantitative measurement
  • Fast and efficient--takes 1 measurement in 2 seconds
  • Automated Surface Analyst products allow manufacturers to implement non-contact surface quality inspections directly on the production line
  • Results can be tracked and analyzed to reveal if a surface is trending toward or away from adhesion success
  • Simple and intuitive use means results won’t vary between users
