Evaluation of physical properties in solid or liquid state. Prediction of acceptance of subsequent further layers, design or coating.
The applicability of surface science data, and the instrumentation available to generate it within the field of ceramics is extensive. Whether the driving force is the acceptance, of a finished ceramic part, to the application of a secondary decorative coating, or the placement of a printed pattern (electronic track), a qualitative and quantitative appreciation of the interactions at each stage of the manufacturing process is crucial. Much development has taken place; high temperature achievement, monitor and control, to address the specific requirements of this application field.
Allow Gerhardt to consider the specific requirements of your industry or customers, along with the properties of your samples to determine which available technology will provide the most robust data: tensiometry (DataPhysics DCAT range) or optical (DataPhysics OCA range).
Ultimately it will be the combination of our experience, the quality of the instrumentation available and the care with which we guide users through the interpretation of early sample data that will ensure the maximum impact and return on your companies investment.
