SGL offers consulting and cure monitoring services for your quality control and research needs. SGL has pioneered the commercial development of patented fluorescence technology for monitoring properties of coatings and other polymers. This fluorescence ratio technique is a reliable and simple method for monitoring degree of cure or other properties such as solvent rub or micro-hardness. It can also be used to monitor thickness or coat-weight. It is useful for quality control and assurance of both resins and finished products.

Cure Monitor Services

  • Help Monitoring Degree of Cure of Coatings, Films or Adhesives
  • Monitor Thickness
  • Correlate to Coating Property including Solvent Rub and Hardness
  • Fast - 20 Millisecond Measurement Possible
  • Non-destructive Technique
  • Adaptable to On-Line Monitoring
