Surface tension analysis

Your needs: measure the surface tension of your materials

The surface of a material is a vulnerable zone where many interactions with its environment take place. It conditions, by its specific characteristics, the global performances of materials. It can impact the reliability and the solidity of a product in case of failures (corrosion, wear, adhesion, friction…).

As far as surface tension is concerned, it is the molecules inside a condensed phase (liquid or solid) that are subjected to cohesive forces with their neighbors. These forces are felt only at short distances. For a molecule inside the liquid, these forces are balanced, which is not the case if the molecule is near the surface.

The FILAB laboratory assists you in your problems related to surface tension on your materials

For more than 30 years, FILAB laboratory has had the experience and specific analytical equipment to meet the needs of surface analysis and characterization on all types of materials (metallic, polymer, ceramic). 

Thanks to a tailor-made support, FILAB laboratory offers you surface tension analysis such as

  • Surface tension analysis on solutions by the hanging drop method (digidrop).

  • Analysis of the interfacial tension of a solution.

  • Measurement of the surface tension on a polymer.

  • Surface tension analysis on medical devices.
