Case Studies

The following are some examples of the types of problems Alliance Technologies has solved in the past:

  • Paint
    Three paint samples were submitted to Alliance Technologies for analysis to assay CO2 levels generated in the headspace of paint samples containing various additives. The technique developed in this feasibility study would be used to characterize volatile release from paints over time. Alliance’s results suggested that this type of analysis would be appropriate for investigating paint stability ...
  • Characterization of Water and Residue Samples
    Three residue samples were characterized by energy dispersive x-ray microanalysis (EDX) and Fourier transform infrared microspectroscopy (FTIRM). The residue samples were spectroscopically & elementally similar and consisted primarily of an organic material with various levels of silica, titanium, and iron. The organic material in the residue samples was identified as polyurethane thermoplastic. The elemental content of ...
  • Tile Adhesive Analysis
    Twelve samples were received by Alliance Technologies as part of an investigation into possible causes for delamination of laminate floor tiles. The samples were characterized to look for differences between adhesive samples and to compare them with performance differences.
  • Laminated Product Characterization
    Samples of a company’s laminated product (A) and their competitor’s laminated product (B) were submitted to Alliance to investigate poor ink adhesion on the “A” sample. Using high magnifications to view both samples, some differences in surface morphology were noted as possible causes for poor adhesion on the A sample.
