Overview

In this webinar, KRÜSS experts will be joined by a developer from Clariant Specialty Chemicals to explain how they achieve and control the desired foam properties for their applications.

Traditionally, many foam developers have used shake tests to measure their foam. But these tests are extremely limited and inconsistent.

Webinar attendees will learn about the huge impact that the quality of foam can have on a product or process: from toothpaste and shaving cream to milk foam in a cappuccino. To give customers what they want by developing products that meet these demands, a solid understanding of the numbers is critical.

Key Takeaways

  • Identify the physical attributes that define the properties of foam
  • Discover how you can influence foam behavior
  • Understand how to measure relevant parameters including foam formation, stability, structure, liquid content, drainage speed, decay time and bubble size
  • Learn how our foam analysis tools can deliver all the foam values simultaneously in the same foaming and decay experiment
