Manufacturer: Data Physics

Contact angle measuring device for the measurement of the static and the dynamic contact angle, the surface free energy of solids, and the surface and the interfacial tension of liquids. The OCA 20 enables the reduction of subjective factors and time involved for contact angle measurements in research, quality and production inspection.

Benefits of the OCA20 Tensiometer and Contact Angle

It is easy to use. The video-based optical contact angle measuring system OCA 20 is the most versatile instrument for the contact angle measurement and drop shape analysis.
