Dynamic Absorption Tester

Contact angle measurement is an empirical tool for understanding the wetting between a liquid and a substrate. The DAT Dynamic Absorption Tester offers a range of integrated instruments, for research as well as quality control. These instruments enable real-time, automatic analysis at full video speed of the interaction between a liquid droplet and a specimen surface. The time-dependent wetting and liquid penetration correlates to many experienced production problems in surface coating, sizing, printing and adhesion.

Densometer (Gurley)

Model 58-03 measures air permeability (Gurley type) of sheet like materials including Paper, Paperboard and nonwovens. Porosity of paper or density is an important measurement when simulating conditions where paper is picked up under vacuum.

Parker Print-Surf (Single Head)

Developed from Dr. John Parker's original method, the Parker Print-Surf (PPS) is designed to accurately measure the surface roughness of sheet materials under conditions similar to those experienced during the printing process. The sample is clamped between a precision engineered measuring head and a specifically designed backing assembly. It provides the information you need to avoid time-consuming, costly printing problems.

PocketGoniometer PGX+

The Model 68-76 PocketGoniometer PGX+ is an electronic, video-based, contact-angle goniometer designed for quality control applications. To perform a measurement, simply place the portable instrument directly on the specimen and press “start.” No sample cutting or preparation is required, saving set up time and eliminating the need for sample manipulation.

PPS Calibration Kit

The Parker Print-Surf (PPS) Test and Calibration Set enables the instrument user to make statistically valid calibration checks traceable to the reference instrument. The set includes three sets of six discs (18 in total), each set has a different roughness value assigned to it after measurement on the reference instrument. Nominal roughness values are set to cover ranges for previous and current models of Parker-Print Surfs.

Automatic Cobb Tester

The ACT monitors water uptake continuously across a full 100 cm² area of sized paper or board as a function of time. Apart from the total amount of absorbed water over 60 seconds, this technology reveals the different dynamic components of water absorption.

Cobb Sizing Testers

Water absorptiveness (Cobb value) is the mass of water absorbed in a specific time by a 1 sq. meter sample of paper, board or corrugated under conditions specified in standards such as TAPPI T 441. Cobb sizing testers provide a simple, standardized method for fast determination of the quantity of water absorbed by a paper or board in a given time.
