BTG Labs is proud to have the Surface Analyst featured on the cover of the January/February issue of SAMPE Journal (Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering). The journal includes the latest in the field of materials and processing.
As a company with a state-of-the-art Materials and Processing Lab, BTG Labs has regularly been presenting and attending SAMPE conferences and events for 10 years. Subscribe to the SAMPE Journal to read this month's issue on adhesives and bonding featuring articles such as "Quality Controlled Induction Welding by Adapted Process Parameters."
This year at the SAMPE 2017 conference and exhibition in Seattle, BTG Labs will host booth, #H41. During the conference, Chief Scientist Dr. Giles Dillingham will present a paper on techniques in which to analyze surfaces prior to surface sensitive processes like coating and adhering.
Properly preparing and examining a process relies on manipulating and understanding the top 2-3 molecular layers of a surface. There are several instruments used by materials and processing laboratories to dissect surface chemistries: X ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), reflection FTIR (including attenuated total reflectance and reflection-absorption FTIR), and surface energy measurements via contact angle techniques.
Register for SAMPE 2017 to hear Dr. Dillingham's presentation and other members of the world's leaders in the field of materials and processing.
"Materials Science" sounds niche, and even a little peculiar, but no manufacturer is a stranger to the implications of material science principles for building reliable products. Materials react with one ...
The water break test is a common way for manufacturers to test the surface cleanliness of metals. Compared to other legacy cleanliness tests, it is relatively simple to perform, however, the results rely almost ...
