Formulaction are here to enhance your material formulation and curing with their new CurinScan Expert.
This is achieved via the ability to optimise your formulation ingredients, temperature, humidity, substrate and film thickness.
Armed with a precise understanding of your formulation, including drying time, drying steps, and open time, you can then optimise your protocol with this unique, easy-to-use instrument. This is possible through:
• Multilayer analysis
• Temperature control
• Humidity control
• Realistic substrate
• No wet-film thickness limitation
• Wide range of experiment time scales.
This instrument offers the following benefits:
• In-situ and contactless
• Sensitive to nanometer mobility
• Surface and bulk measurements
• Realistic experimental conditions
• Easy sampling
How does the CurinScan work?
The CurinScan allows the monitoring of nanoscale mobility during the curing and drying process. Thanks to the Nanosacle Mobility Analysis (NMA), it identifies the drying and curing mechanisms (evaporation, packing, hardening, etc.) and their characteristic times (e.g. open time, dry-surface, drythrough, etc.).
This measurement is in-situ, contactless and works on any type of substrate, including glass, metal, paper, and wood, from RT up to 250 °C.
The measurement principle for the CurinScan is based on Nanoscale Mobility Analysis (NMA) and measures the structure’s (particles, polymers, pigments, etc.) Brownian motion.
During the film formation or curing process, structure nanoscale mobility changes due to the change in the material properties, for example from liquid to solid.
The in-situ analysis of the nanoscale mobility provides a full reading of the thermodynamic mechanisms and characteristic times.
What are the other key benefits of the CurinScan?
• Objectivity and accuracy to monitor the curing/drying
• Determine the characteristic times of the film formation
• Analysis from room temperature up to 250 °C with integrated humidity control
• Evaluate the impact of formulation, temperature, substrate and thickness
• Optimize the formulation and the manufacturing protocol.
What industries can the CurinScan Expert be used in?
This popular new instrument can be used for many applications, including:
• Paints and inks
• Home and personal care
• Batteries and electronics
• Chemistry and polymers.
