Convert Grams Per Square Meter to Kilograms Per Square Meter 1 Gram per Square Meter: Mass of grams per an area of a square meter. 1 g/m2 = 0.001 kg/m2.

What is a Dyn?

The dyne (symbol “dyn”, from Greek δύναμις (dynamis) meaning power, force) is a unit of force specified in the centimeter-gram-second (CGS) system of units, a predecessor of the modern SI. One dyne is equal to 10 µN (micronewtons), or to 10 nsn (nanosthenes) in the old meter-tonne-second system of units.

Why corona treatment is used?

A corona treating system is designed to increase the surface energy of plastic films, foils and paper in order to allow improved wettability and adhesion of inks, coatings and adhesives. As a result, the materials treated will demonstrate improved printing and coating quality, and stronger lamination strength.

How do you measure surface energy?

Determining the surface energy can be easily achieved by measuring contact angle or by use of Surface Energy Test Pens or Inks (Dyne level testing). We supply a range of surface energy measurement equipment; Dyne Test Pens, Test Pen 38 Dyne, Dyne Test Inks, Drawdown Test Equipment, and Contact Angle Meters.

What is the unit of surface energy?

Description. • Surface energy density has the dimension mass per time squared. The SI composite unit of surface energy density is the joule per square meter.

The energy of adhesion EA is the energy which is released when one liquid or solid surface comes in contact with another liquid or solid surface. During the wetting process, the two previously existing surfaces, which are in contact with vapor or air, disappear.

How does water adhesion support life?

This is because the water molecules are attracted to the straw and therefore adhere to it. Cohesive and adhesive forces are important for sustaining life. For example, because of these forces, water can flow up from the roots to the tops of plants to feed the plant.

Why does adhesion occur in water?

This is because the water molecules are attracted to the charged glass walls of the capillary more than they are to each other and therefore adhere to it. This type of adhesion is called capillary action.
