    The new Spinning drop Video Tensiometer SVT 25

    The SVT 25 is the new Spinning drop Video Tensiometer of the SVT series. With completely redesigned electrical components and many improvements it will continue the legacy of its successful predecessor SVT 20N.

    Due to the high-performance camera with USB 3 interface the SVT 25 can resolve spinning drops with up to 2048 x 1088 pixel and hence offers five times the resolution of its predecessor. In Addition fast processes e.g. during oscillation experiments can be captured with up to 3250 frames/s.

    The TP 50 control panel with touch screen and precision control wheel ensures a fast and intuitive device control, even during complex measurements. It enables an easy and precise control of the rotational velocity, tilting angle, camera position, illumination and the temperature of the new measuring cells.

    Introducing the new Surface Profile Analyzer SPA 25

    The new Surface Profile Analyzer SPA 25 can measure surface topography and roughness parameters with exceptional speed and resolution. Due to the utilisation of the white-light interferometry measuring technique the Surface Profile Analyzer can reach a height resolution of 0.1 nm.

    Using the industry leading MountainsMap® Imaging Topography software the SPA 25 enables an incredibly detailed 3D visualisation of surface texture. Furthermore the surface roughness can be analysed according to various industry standards like ISO 25178, ISO 4287, ISO 13565, ISO 16610, etc.

    Using the SPA 25 in combination with an optical contact angle measuring and contour analysis system of the OCA series provides further insight into surface properties by e.g. determining the surface corrected contact angle according to the Wenzel theory.

    Topview contact angle measurement – now even on smallest surface areas

    With the picolitre dosing system PDDS and a new, special topview measuring system from DataPhysics Instruments it is now for the first time possible to measure contact angles in topview automatically even on smallest surface areas, using the optical contact angle measuring systems of the OCA series. Hence, wettability and surface energies of, for example, individual paths and contacts of printed circuit boards can be studied – even when the side view needed for conventional contact angle measurement is obstructed.

    Make an appointment now with our application centre and experience first-hand how your very own surface chemistry questions are answered. No matter how small and demanding your samples – we from DataPhysics Instruments accept the challenge and will tailor you an optimal solution.

    OCA 200 is a finalist for the 2018 R&D 100 award

    Our contact angle measuring and drop contour analysis system for microscopic and macroscopic structures OCA 200 is a finalist for the 2018 R&D 100 award. The R&D 100 award is one of the most prestigious scientific innovation awards in the USA and is awarded annually.

    The smallest drops of highly volatile liquids can be dosed with our dosing systems for microstructures and analysed using the trendsetting optics and high resolution camera of the OCA 200. Hence, ground-breaking wettability studies in surface science are now possible. Substrates can include anything from a macroscopic silicon wafer to the microscopic mesh structure of a coronary stent. Even the wettability of the tiniest screw threads of a dental implant or a single carbon fibre can now be accurately measured.

    The winners of the R&D 100 award will be announced during the R&D 100 conference on the 15th and 16th of November 2018.

    DataPhysics Instruments expands to the United States

    As the leading manufacturer of high quality and innovative measurement equipment within the field of surface and interfacial science, DataPhysics Instruments has recently founded a new subsidiary company in Charlotte, North Carolina, to better serve the surface chemistry market in the United States and Canada.

    With Bob Fidler as the responsible Executive Vice President, our prospective and existing customers will benefit from even better local technical support and service. In the new U.S. headquarter, our complete instrument portfolio is available for demonstration including the optical contact angle measuring and contour analysis systems of the OCA series, the dynamic contact angle measuring devices and tensiometer of the DCAT series, the spinning drop tensiometers of the SVT series as well as the dispersion stability testing device MS 20 and humidity generators of the HGC series.

    With our new location just a quick five-minute drive from Charlotte Douglas International Airport, DataPhysics Instruments USA Corp. is easily reachable - either for a personal demonstration of our equipment or to participate in one of our instructional training courses to learn all the functionalities of our devices, enabling you to get the most out of your DataPhysics Instruments instrumentation.

    We can now also perform local lab testing of samples to determine the appropriate analysis method to meet your needs. For larger groups we also can conduct seminars directly at the customer site, covering both measurement theory and practical components. For more details, please check out our website and feel free to contact us. We will gladly consult with you to find the proper solution for your specific surface chemistry challenge.

    New contact angle measuring system for macroscopic and microscopic structures

    The OCA 200 is the new model of the OCA series for contact angle measurements on large areas as well as on micro-structured samples. With the trendsetting 10-fold high performance zoom optics and the reliable automatic optic alignment for autofocus and observation angle, the OCA 200 is well equipped for any sample size.

    Exchanging additional ancillary lenses, like with the predecessor OCA 100 / 100Micro has become unnecessary, due to the extended zoom range of the optics. Hence, with the motorized sample table and the autofocus, measuring procedures can be automated easily and surface properties, like the wetting behaviour, the surface energy or the work of adhesion can be analysed e.g. across the whole surface of a silicon wafer at the push of a button.

    A simple rotation of the zoom ring on the optics is enough to enable the analysis of microscopic structures like the mesh of a coronary stent and with the picolitre dosing system PDDS even contact angles on individual wires of the stent can be measured.
