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 uses chemical analysis to identify contamination sources and then recommends remediation options to control the adhesion process and eliminate failure.

Examples of work may include:

  • Identification and quantification of contaminants on samples through use of techniques like FTIR (Fourier-transform Infrared Spectroscopy), XPS (X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy) and contact angle measurements
  • Identification of the sources of contamination 
  • Development of remediation strategies
