Webinar: Uncovering and Controlling Non-obvious Variables in Surface Preparation of Polymers to Maximize Adhesion
Updated April 2023 Preparation of polymers for adhesion includes processes like corona, flame and plasma treatment. These can be very effective if implemented with proper process control feedbacks. However, they don’t always translate into reliable manufacturing processes. Failure analysis has...
Updated April 2023 Most polymers contain many non-polymeric components intended to stabilize, toughen, color and lubricate the final product. Certain classes of these additives are capable of migrating to the surface. This additive migration can create a surface that has a composition very...
Watch how the Surface Analyst lets medical manufacturers verify the quality of plasma treatment prior to coating catheters in order to achieve FDA validation.
Are you a medical supply or device manufacturer that has struggled to achieve FDA validation of your products due to medical tubing or otherwise?
Updated April 2023 The success of bonding and printing to thermoplastics depends on effective control of a remarkably thin zone on the surface of a polymer.
