Characterisation of Surfaces and Interfaces using Tensiometry
This workshop will present the latest techniques for analysing surfaces and interfaces using tensiometry. Material properties to be examined include wettability, adhesion, cleanliness, surface free energy and interfacial rheology. Both new and existing users are invited to enjoy the demonstrations followed by additional “hands on” time for sample analysis. Morning and afternoon sessions available.
• Attension Theta – Optical tensiometer or contact angle meter
• Attension Theta Lite – Cost effective version of the Theta
• 3D Topography module – Unique accessory for evaluating the influence of surface roughness on wetting.
• Tilting stage – For automated measurement of dynamic contact angle
Locations: Melbourne, Canberra, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland
Date: 12 – 23 March 2018
Registration is free – Please register online to secure your seat.
