LearnHow to Solve the Problems of Adhesion

Book your place on one of Dyne

Technology’s Surface Energy Measurement &Surface Treatment Training courses that will be held throughout 2013

The one day training course is held at the Dyne Technology Centre in Lichfield, Staffordshire; where delegates can learn the fundamentals of surface energy and how to improve bond performance to plastics and rubber.

Previously,delegates have attended because they wanted to learn how to achieve better adhesion to low surface energy materials e.g. P.P.,P.E.where printing inks rub off,glued parts fail, gaskets and seals won’t bond and paint and coating will not adhere. These problems are experienced throughout the automotive, medical device, print and in fact any industry that has to bond, print, or coat plastic or rubber components and are becoming more

common- place with the increasing use of

Low surface energy material Liquid does not ‘wet’the surface

High surface energy material Liquid ‘wets’ the surface


The course tutor,Chris Lines, has many years’ experience working with manufacturing industries and has been able to solve countless problems of adhesion. Chris can also be found discussing “Solving the Problems of Adhesion” at various exhibitions and events, his latest being to the Medical Device Industry at MedTEC, Ireland in October this year.

The one day training course is tailored to cover the problems related to each delegate’s industry where possible. Former delegates have commented on Chris’s vast knowledge and easy to understand delivery style backed up with lots of practical demonstrations and often recomm- end the course to colleagues.

If you think you have aproblem with adhesion and want to learn more this training course is definitely for you.
