Paints and Coatings
Enabling materials scientists and engineers to research and develop advanced paint and coatings technologies.
The study of the integrity, conformity and homogeneity of paints and coatings requires an analytical tool set capable of taking into account elemental, chemical, molecular and structural considerations.
Whether ultra thin film transparent multilayer coatings for optical assemblies, or paints and primers applied to the surfaces of automobiles, the successful application is reliant on a detailed understanding of the chemistry of the coating and the interface formed between coating and substrate.
Achieving a comprehensive understanding of these processes allows the development of successful coating strategies. This is dependent on the combined information that can be provided from a broad range of analytical techniques. Thermo Scientific instrumentation offers a selection of surface specific and bulk sensitive spectroscopic solutions required for the range of technical problems encountered.
