Webinar News

Date and Time: Wednesday, April 27th 2016 UK Time: 6 pm While contact angle measurement has been around for many years, we have recently developed a way to account for the underlying surface’s micro-scale roughness. This approach allows us to report … Continue reading

How to measure the effects of surface roughness

Many surface modification and coating technologies that are used for optimising wetting and adhesion properties influence both surface chemistry and roughness. Understanding the mechanisms that impact wetting by separating these two factors can be a useful tool in product development … Continue reading

Contact Angle Measurement using Theta Optical Tensiometers

Contact angle measurements are used to study the wettability of surfaces.  This is especially useful in processes like coating and painting where good wettability is required to ensure good adhesion. Wettability or wetting is the process that occurs when a liquid … Continue reading

Contact Angle and Interfacial Tension in High Pressures

 New Biolin Scientific Attension High Pressure Chamber Studying oil reservoir wettability is essential in optimizing enhanced oil recovery methods. Wettability can be studied with contact angle and interfacial tension measurements which give quantitative measures of wetting conditions. Oil reservoirs typically … Continue reading
