Adhesion problems are one of the main reasons for the failure of the product. Read to find out how contact angle measurements can help solve the problem.
Work of adhesion is defined as a work required to separate two phases from each other.
While contact angle goniometry has been around for many years, we have recently developed a way to account for the underlying surface’s micro-scale roughness.
Marine mussels are unbeatable when it comes to underwater adhesive strategies. They can attach to virtually all surfaces, tenaciously sustaining their bonds in saltwater and turbulent wave-swept conditions.
Wood-plastic composites are relatively new materials as they started to emerge at the beginning of the 90’s. The most widespread use of WCPs is in outdoor decking but it is also used in railings and siding as well as park benches and indoor furniture.
