Measuring the Behaviour of Brake Materials More Efficiently

Testing friction materials for brake applications using a full-scale dynamometer is an intensive testing method, in terms of both cost and time, that requires that the brake pads and rotor be tested in their final form. Bruker has developed a rapid, cost-effective...

Zeta Potential Measurements in Polymer Research

In many applications of polymer materials, as e.g. coatings, composites or as smart surfaces, the material properties or the adhesion to other substances are determined to a great amount by functional groups situated at the very surface. While contact angle...

MXenes: A Model Material for Solid Lubricants

MXenes: A Model Material for Solid Lubricants

Two-dimensional materials with graphene-like structure have gained remarkable attention, because they have demonstrated remarkable tribological properties, even when applying only one or a few atomic layers of the material to the contact zone. However, the mechanisms...
