SHORT COURSE ON ADHESION MEASUREMENT TECHNIQUES
AT NEWARK AIRPORT
Oct. 24, 1999 and Nov. 28, 1999
This course is designed to supplement symposia on surface science phenomena by presenting an overview of the latest adhesion measurement techniques which are being used to evaluate the PRACTICAL ADHESION of coatings. Emphasis will be given to methods which can be carried out in a manufacturing environment as well as in the lab and which give results that are directly relevant to the durability and performance of the coating. The effects of coating elastic properties and residual stress are considered as well as other external influences which affect coating adhesion.
Historical overview and background.
Basics of adhesion measurement:
- Qualitative methods
- Semi-quantitative methods
- Fully quantitative methods
Problem of setting adhesion requirements for coating applications:
- What is a sufficient level of adhesion strength?
- Avoid over specifying adhesion requirements to the detriment of other product requirements.
- Problem of long term environmental degradation.
Audience: Scientists/Engineers in chemistry and materials science, Managers in materials/process areas
Level: Technical overview
Prerequisites: General background In chemistry, physics or materials science.
Duration: 1 day
Registration fee: $495
