Analytical equipment & methods

The following analytical equipment & methods provide us with reliable and reproducible results both in the laboratory and in production environments.

  • Release force measurements show how adhesive tapes react with release liners.  The angle and speed when peeling the tape are variable.
  • X-ray fluorescence measurements determine the exact coating thickness of the silicone on the surface. Calibration is standardised by g/m2.
  • AAS Measurements (Atomic-Absorption-Spectroscopy) give information about curing of the silicone coating by measuring.
  • FTIR-Spectrometer (Fourier-Transform-Infrared-Spectroscopy) characterises the silicone, substrate and the finished product.
  • Confocal Microscopy shows the condition of the surface in very high resolution and can measure the topography.
