Measure printability of plastic substrates and other non-porous surfaces with CON-TROL-CURE® FELT TIP DYNE PENS. These chisel-tip markers provide a quick, clean and easy method of testing treatment levels on polymer plastics. The simple application of a dyne pen to the surface or printing side of the tested material will determine its surface tension value, which proves if the wettability of the pen's designated dyne level has been reached.
Once surface tension is known, the tested material's printability and adhesion properties may then be quantified. The CON-TROL-CURE® FELT TIP DYNE PENS are tube color-coded for easy identification. Each set contains 8 pens in standard levels: 30, 32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44 dynes/cm. 6 month shelf life.
CON-TROL-CURE® FELT TIP DYNE PENS from 30 to 44 dynes/cm are available through special order only.
