Wide-ranging for both liquid and solid materials.
Example case studies:
- Degradation study of flame retardant inkjet ink formulations (Nazdar Ltd)
- Study of surface coating adhesion failure (Huf North America Automotive Parts Manufacturing Co.)
- Investigation into contamination issues associated with assembly of control units (IMI Precision Engineering)
- Investigation into printed board flaking issues (Multi Packaging Solutions – Limerick)
Who can use the facility?
The unit is primarily set up as an analytical service but if a particular project has extensive instrument input then training may be given.
