Dynamic Contact Angle Tensiometer with liquid dosing unit DCAT21
Selection of formulation raw materials, stability of finished product and suitability for purpose.
The formulation and manufacture of the complex liquids applicable to the cosmetics and healthcare industry, is a common area to which an understanding of surface and interfacial tension is relevant.
The success of mixing during manufacture, and the stability of a suspension or emulsion on storage, can be predicted and evaluated by from the application of the DataPhysics OCA/DCAT ranges. Specifically, the study of liquid drops on single hairs or fibres takes advantage of the latest technology available from our instrument-manufacturing partner.
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.
