Coating analysis

 

Rheolaser COATING

Rheolaser COATING measures microstructure evolution during a film formation process (drying) . The instrument can automatically detect open time, touch-dry time, dry- hard time or curing time.

UP TO 4 SIMULTANEOUS MEASUREMENTS
The instrument can carry out up to 4 measurements at a time, thanks to the adaptable and customizable setup

 New! - The Rheolaser COATING HT 

RheolaserCOATING HT enables the monitoring of microstructure changes during the curing and drying process. Based on diffusing wave spectroscopy (DWS), it identifies the drying & curing mechanisms (evaporation, packing, hardening) and characteristic times (drying time, cured time). Thanks to laser technology, the measurement is non-invasive and works on any type of substrate. Operating temperature of the new module ranges from RT up to 250 °C.
