The Emtec PDA.C 02 MST, Penetration Dynamic Analyzer (Module Standard) is a special tester for the determination of converting process-relevant surface parameters of paper and board via the assessment of the wetting & absorption of liquids.
The PDA.C 02 MST and appropriate testing liquids help to characterize both, surface porosity and hydrophobic surface sizing. The contact of the testing liquid with the sample surface is measured in the relevant time for the converting process, i.e., measurement is possible in the very first milliseconds (surface porosity) or seconds (hydrophobic surface sizing).
- Impregnating process of decor paper: impregnating resin absorption by decor papers
- Printability: effect of surface sizing and surface porosity on the penetration of fountain solution or oil in the offset process
- Glueability: impact of surface sizing and surface porosity on glueability
- Coating process: surface sizing and surface porosity of coating base paper surfaces and quality of coated paper (Latex filming, coating porosity, the thickness of coating layer)
