How clean is clean?

How clean is clean? Cleaning is the daily common process of removing unwanted substances, such as dirt, infectious agents, and other impurities, from an object or environment.  Cleaning occurs in various commercial, industrial, environmental, and domestic contexts, which differ in scale and requirements. Industrial parts cleaning is essential to many processes, as a prelude to surface finishing or to protect […]

Interfacial Rheology

We do testing with a pre-owned OCA20+ODG20  Interfacial transport phenomena are of specific importance in the applications of multiphase fluid systems (complex fluids-suspensions, dispersions and colloids), which possess a large specific surface. Microscopically, the formation of long-range ordered structures inside the created thin films has many implications of both fundamental and practical significance. Applications of […]

Wetting Phenomena under Magnetic Field/ High Pressure Conditions

Applications under high pressure and high temperature can easily be found in many areas, from basic and fundamental research to inevitable utilization in oilfields, where gas injection, thermal injection, steam flooding and  fire flooding technique are applied to enhance oil recovery. Applications under high magnetic field are critical for new material designs, functional electronics performance and […]

Nanoparticles, Nanowires and Microelectronics

  Novel nanowires/nanoparticles/colloidal composite particles have great potential in applications such as thermal coatings, paints, inks, papers, adhesives, thin films, novel sensing materials, and hybrid emulsions for imaging or drug delivery.  Furthermore, the hierarchical assembly of nanowires, which provide building blocks into different architectures, will surely lead to devices with higher structural complexity and new functionality—used […]

Interfacial Phenomena

Interfacial phenomena are significant factors that affect the adsorption of active ingredients such as: drugs onto solid adjuncts in dosage forms, penetration of molecules through all kinds of membranes, emulsion formation and stability, and the dispersion of insoluble particles in liquid media to form suspensions. Interfacial phenomena are also important in the characterization of materials […]

Coatings and Adhesives

In coating and adhesion/bonding operations, it is vital that the adhesive and paint are applied in the correct locations and spread over properly treated surfaces to achieve needed coverage and bond. Poor formulations and incorrectly applied adhesive/paint can weaken the bond and undermine the coating effect.  Hardening of the adhesive( the so called shark skin of the […]

Functional Surface Modifications

Functional surface modification is used to modify the surface of a material by bringing about desired physical, chemical or biological characteristics, different from the ones originally found onto the surface of a material.  The modification can be done by different methods by altering a wide range of characteristics of the surface, such as: roughness, hydrophilicity, surface charge, surface […]

Surface Treatments and Validations for Auto Industry

    Modern advanced surface treatments are used more and more in daily manufacturing of parts for the automotive industry to serve functional and decorative purposes. Higher specific loads (thermal, mechanical, chemical, etc.), weight and friction reduction, longer components lifetime, and improved corrosion resistance are demanding for modern automotive systems. Within the last decades, high-performance […]

On-line Surface/Auto Parts/Metal Cleaning

For massive part production quantity, and associated surface finishing industries, the name of the game in today’s competitive landscape is speed combined with consistent quality and robustness.  The ‘speed’ refers to time-to-market and how early developers can create superior offers to their customers.  Any later entrants, are competitors to this first application in market place as consistent challengers. […]

Foam Generation and Stability

A foam is a colloidal dispersion in which a gas is dispersed in a continuous liquid phase. Many examples of foams in industry and everyday life can be found easily such as shampoo, bubble bath, dishwater detergent, cleaner, laundry, coffee, beer, beverages, soda, mining process, oil recovery, environment remedy, and so on. Solid foams, dispersions of […]
