The Surface Analyst Advantage

Unlike conventional methods like dyne ink or water break tests, the Surface Analyst is the first tool of its kind to bring lab precision surface quality inspection to the factory floor.

Through the push of a button or automated command, the Surface Analyst takes precise, repeatable and objective inspections giving manufacturers complete control of their adhesion process.
