Join us for this free online workshop to discover how you can use Vapor Sorption Techniques to characterize construction materials. The in-depth workshop will cover Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS) and Inverse Gas Chromatography (iGC) technology and their applications.

Organized in partnership with the University of Luxembourg, this session is a vital resource for anyone working in the following fields of research:

  • Cement & concrete
  • Asphalt & bitumen
  • Natural & Synthetic fibres
  • Carbon fibre & graphene
  • Natural stones
  • Wood

What will you learn?

Dynamic Vapor Sorption (DVS):

  • Moisture and organic vapor sorption isotherms and BET surface area
  • Vapor-induced phase changes (glass transition and critical RH)
  • Vapor/moisture permeability and diffusion-related studies
  • Chemisorption and physisorption on building materials for environmental studies
  • Characterizing Restoration Materials for Historic Buildings

Invert Gas Chromatography (iGC-SEA):

  • Surface energy and surface heterogeneity studies, BET surface area
  • Adhesion/cohesion, dispersive and acid-base (specific) interactions of cementitious and composite materials
  • Surface properties of natural and synthetic fibres, wood and minerals
