Adhesive bonding and test engineering

Research and Development in the field adhesive bonding technology and surface pre-treatment for industrial applications (e.g. medical engineering, lightweight design, automotive suppliers…).

Testing required for the approval of medical devices such as fatigue durability testing of coronary and aortic stents as well as electrochemical characterization (accredited method of testing) of implants for the medical industry.

Techniques, methods, equipment

  • Pulsatile Fatigue tester (Fatigue durability of aortic stents)
  • Fatigue durability tester for coronary stents and occluders
  • Electrochemical characterization of implants

Equipment for the application of adhesives

  • Test equipment and dispensing tools for the preparation of standard test specimens
  • Equipment for surface pre-treatment (low pressure plasma, corona/ atmospheric pressure plasma, compressed air blasting, ultrasonic baths)
  • 100 kN mechanical testing equipment
  • 20 kN mechanical testing equipment with non-contact video extensometer
  • Tumbling mixer for mixing and homogenizing of adhesives
  • Dynamic Mechanical Analysis, thermal analysis used to study the physical characteristics of polymers
  • Incubator for curing of adhesives
  • Temperature & Humidity chamber and Immersion test
