Optimisation of substrate production conditions and prediction of subsequent adhesion of coating or printed material.
The applicability of surface science data and the instrumentation available to generate it within the paper industry is universally accepted. Very often the driving force of the manufacturing process will come from the knowledge of the surface properties of the paper at each stage of that process. The impact within markets that the finished product will serve can be determined by a qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the interaction between the paper and the coatings applied during that subsequent use.
Allow Gerhardt to consider the specific requirements of your industry and/or customers, along with the properties of your samples to determine which available technology will provide the most robust data. For your needs: 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.
