Collection of CASE Chemicals Testing Methods


CASE chemicals, also known as CASE materials are important to all facets of global industrial and consumer product manufacturing. The CASE chemicals category are made up of coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers, all of which provide performance, protection, operation, and strength and durability to support and broad range of industries like building and construction, automotive, aerospace, packaging, and marine environments. The formulations and varieties of CASE chemicals are diverse as manufacturers constantly innovate new products to support the evolving automotive market for EVs, nano and electrocoatings, anti-corrosion coatings, low VOC innovations – and that’s just in coatings. The other CASE categories are practically endless in support of finish, texture, longevity, protection, or adhesion.

Mechanical Properties of Films and Coatings

DMA is used to investigate the stiffness of materials by applying mechanical stress to a film or coated polymer. The parameters are used to evaluate glass transitions, degree of crystallinity and stiffness behavior of the sample.

Time-Resolved FTIR studies of Adhesives and Paints

Paints and adhesives, although dissimilar materials with different purposes, have a commonality that they are typically liquid phase starting materials that end up as solid materials after a drying or curing period.
