Moisture ingress into advanced materials can critically affect their performance

The surface properties of these materials, as well as their moisture sorption behaviour, are critical as the primary use of fibers and fillers is within other materials. Adhesion performance, flow behaviour, surface energetics, moisture uptake and diffusion can all be readily studied using our sorption instrument systems.

Drying
The moisture sorption properties of fibers and fillers are critical in their subsequent industrial usage. In the past 10 years the DVS method invented by Surface Measurement Systems has become the standard laboratory method for studying drying and dehydration behaviour of fillers and fibers.
