Surface Contamination is one of the most common causes of adhesion failures. When our clients are attempting to troubleshoot performance issues, honing in on the potential causes of contamination will rapidly accelerate the problem-solving process. With this service, our Surface Lab provides chemical analysis to eliminate contamination sources and suggests remediation options to control the adhesion process and fix failure.

Examples of work may include:

  • Extraction of contaminants on samples 
  • Finger-print the source of contaminants through FTIR (Fourier-transform Infrared Spectroscopy)
  • Elemental analysis of contaminated surfaces with XPS (X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy)
  • Rebuild your contamination process to understand and define material system tolerances
