Tools and instruments to characterise surface properties are unmissable in research and industry. Apparatus to explore the surface at the microscopic level such as atomic force microscopy can be used to accurately map surface topology and local physicochemical properties. Other devices are particularly designed to determine properties such as resistance to abrasive forces, layer thickness and antifouling characterist (more)ics.
The optical contact angle measuring and contour analysis systems of the OCA series are high precisio (more)n optical measuring devices for the measurement of interfacial parameters and phenomena.
The dynamic contact angle measuring devices and tensiometer of the DCAT series are universal measuri (more)ng devices for the force-based measurement of interfacial parameters and phenomena.
The Zeta Potential Analyzer ZPA 20 uses the patented bidirectional oscillating streaming potential a (more)nalysis to measure the zeta potential of fibres, powders and plate shaped solid materials.
The spinning drop video tensiometers of the SVT series are special-purpose optical instruments for m (more)easuring extremely low interfacial tensions and rheological properties.
