Manufacturing environments create numerous opportunities for contamination. Knowing what contaminants are threatening composite bond strength and reliability, as well as knowing where they are coming from (such as mold release left on a surface), is crucial to putting process controls in place to neutralize damage that can be caused by these contaminants.
Quantitative surface quality measurements give manufacturers the proof to know when the surface is clean enough and the ability to monitor changes in cleanliness overtime.
Primary topics include:
- Identification of specific and common contaminants
- Remediation strategies through evaluation of solvent cleaning and abrasion effectiveness
- Quantitative contamination detection techniques
