“Forget The Goniometer”

The answers to your manufacturing surface quality problems aren’t solved in the lab – they’re right in the palm of your hand.

It’s no secret

The goniometer is one of the best ways to measure contact angle to understand the quality of a surface prior to bonding, or any other adhesion-critical process.

But, your manufacturing surface quality problems aren’t happening in a lab, so why measure them there?

You need a highly accurate, proven, and reliable way to measure surface quality on your material surface, but goniometers are limited by:

5

Unrealistic Environment

Use in a lab setting where minimal environmental variables exist, unlike the manufacturing floor

5

Minimal Accuracy

Profile-view measurement provides only 2 data points on the drop, allowing for incomplete and subjective measurements on non-round droplets

5

Physical Barriers

Clunky, immobile, instrument size

5

In-adaptability

Unable to measure on rough, curved, or vertical surfaces

5

Learning Curve

Requires significant user training and experience

5

Incomplete Information

Difficult to measure very low contact angles due to undefined horizon line

What if you could overcome all of these challenges,

and simultaneously get real-time business insights into how your manufacturing processes are affecting your material surfaces? Not only is it now possible, but it can be held in the palm of your hand.

The Surface Analyst™ is the world’s first truly handheld instrument for obtaining goniometer-quality surface energy measurements right on the factory floor.

We made it simple

We took water contact angle measurement, and made it fully mobile and self-contained so measurements are:

N

Compatible

Can be taken in any environment, factory floor or the lab itself

N

Safe

Measurements are nondestructive to the part being tested

N

Flexible

Measurement can be made on almost any material, in any orientation and on complex geometries

N

Accurate

Provides an accurate and quantitative measurement for reliable testing

N

Fast

Quick and efficient measurement in 2 seconds
