Tech Tip 17 - Identifying Particles in an Epoxy
Product Announcement from Epoxy Technology
Epoxy Technology provides important details on identifying particles in an epoxy adhesive using Hegman gauge analysis. For wet particle analysis, a Hegman Gauge (sometimes referred to as a grind gauge) is frequently used to determine the fineness of the grind and to analyze different types of particles within an epoxy matrix.
During a Hegman Gauge analysis, there are four main categories of particles that can be displayed: uniform fine dispersion, particle size determination, crystallization, and agglomeration.
