Efficient use of dyne inks for the analysis of surface activation
You need to characterize the surface tension of your components in a reproducible way? You want to know what the surface energy is at different points in your production (incoming goods, production line or final inspection)? You work with different cleaning processes and want to adjust the process correctly?
Then we have the right PlasmaTalk for you: We show you different ways to measure the surface energy of your components. Each method has advantages and disadvantages in terms of measurement speed and accuracy. Some can be used inline others only outside the production processes. Aspects such as substrate, geometry or environmental conditions sometimes significantly influence the results.
In this PlasmaTalk, we will focus in particular on the use of test inks. Using different substrates, we will show you how to use the test inks in a targeted manner along your production process and how to evaluate the results in a reproducible manner - especially on geometrically critical components. In this context, we also demonstrate the effect of an Openair-Plasma® treatment.
After participating in PlasmaTalk "Efficient use of test inks" you will know more about:
- Selection of the appropriate measurement method for surface energies
- Selection and application of test inks
- Influencing parameters on the measurement result (e.g. material, geometry and surface roughness)
- Do`s and Don`ts in handling
This no-charge PlasmaTalk is aimed at research, development and quality control personnel as well as designers, process engineers and operators of production equipment in industrial processes.
The PlasmaTalk will last approximately 40-60 minutes plus a question and answer session. If you have a specific question, please send it in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can incorporate it into the program.
