Materials Characterization using DVS and iGC-SEA technique for Wood and Composites Applications

This free workshop covers in-depth Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) technique and iGC-SEA (Inverse Gas Chromatography – Surface Energy Analyzer), the most-advanced scientific instrument in determining surface energy. Individual whose works are in line with studying materials wood and composites will gain better understanding on the uses and benefits of DVS and iGC-SEA.

Speakers from industry and academia will discuss DVS and iGC-SEA, from theory to common applications and present real case studies. In addition, an instrument demonstrations will also be taken place at the end of all presentations.

Date: Thursday, 10th March 2016

Time: 10am – 4pm (Central European Time)

Venue: University Göttingen Campus Nord Büsgenweg 4, Room 4.1, 37077 Göttingen, Germany
