1. A Multilens Measurement Platform for High-Throughput Adhesion Measurements
Published: 12/1/2004
Authors: Aaron M Forster, Weiping Zhang, Christopher M Stafford
Abstract: There are few methods available for performing high-throughput adhesion measurements. Current high-throughput methodologies for measuring interfacial adhesion rely on serial or sequential testing of discrete or continuous libraries. Alternatively, ...

2. Characterization of Ambient Temperature Cure Epoxies Used in Adhesive Anchor Applications
Published: 5/20/2009
Authors: Joannie W Chin, Aaron M Forster, Cyril Clerici, Donald Lee Hunston
Abstract: Thermo-viscoelastic properties and creep response of two commercial, ambient temperature cure epoxy structural adhesives were analyzed and compared. The adhesives were formulated by the same manufacturer and appeared to have the same base chemistry; ...

3. Combinatorial Adhesion Measurements: Factorial Design Concepts for Data Collection and Library Evaluation
Published: 1/1/2003
Authors: Aaron M Forster, Christopher M Stafford, Alamgir Karim, Eric J. Amis
Abstract: Product discovery in the adhesives industry is often characterized by experimental trial and error combined with empirical knowledge. The NIST developed multi-lens combinatorial adhesion test (MCAT) has the potential to increase the efficiency of th ...

4. Combinatorial Approach to Characterizing Epoxy Curing
Published: 1/1/2004
Authors: Naomi Eidelman, D T Raghavan, Aaron M Forster, Eric J. Amis, Alamgir Karim
Abstract: Three complementary techniques were used to follow the curing of a diglycidyl ether bisphenol A epoxy resin (DGEBA): FT-IR microspectroscopy, confocal microscopy, and axisymmetric adhesion testing. Each technique probes different characteristics of ...

5. Combinatorial Techniques to Measure Curing of Epoxy Films
Published: 2/1/2004
Authors: Aaron M Forster, D Ragahavan, Naomi Eidelman, Alamgir Karim
Abstract: Combinatorial methods were implemented in the investigation of time and temperature effects on epoxy curing by using three complementary techniques: axisymmetric adhesion testing, FT-IR reflectance mapping, and confocal fluorescence mapping to charac ...

6. Combinatorial characterization of photopolymerizable composites: Effect of filler type and content on properties
Published: 3/22/2009
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Aaron M Forster, Haiqing Hu, Nancy J Lin, Sheng Lin-Gibson
Abstract: Multi-component formulations coupled with complex processing conditions govern the final properties of photopolymerizable dental composites. In this study, a single test substrate was fabricated to support multiple formulations with a gradient in deg ...

7. Effect of Annealing Condition and Composition on the Scratch Behavior of Fluorinated Coatings
Published: 9/24/2008
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Aaron M Forster, K Wood
Abstract: Fluorinated and acrylic coatings are commonly used as binders for exterior coatings because of their excellent resistance to UV radiation and many corrosive chemical agents. It is known that the fluorinated component of the coating usually has a lowe ...

8. Effect of Nano-Silica Fillers on Surface Morphology and Mechanical Properties of Polymer-Silica Composites
Published: 8/20/2009
Authors: Li Piin Sung, Dongmei Zhe, Aaron M Forster, Peter Krommenhoek, Nancy J Lin, Sheng Lin-Gibson
Abstract: Investigation on the effect of nano-silica on the effect of nano-silica on the surface morphology and mechanical properties has been carried out on two-dimensional (2D) gradient polymer-silica composite samples varied in chemical composition (e.g., f ...

9. Effects of filler type and content on mechanical properties of photopolymerizable composites determined using a two-dimensional gradient platform
Published: 2/5/2009
Authors: Sheng Lin-Gibson, Li Piin Sung, Haiqing Hu, Aaron M Forster, Nancy J Lin
Abstract: Photopolymerizable dental composites have complex processing conditions and multi-component formulations that affect the final properties. Combinatorial screening is a useful approach for evaluating multiple properties of the composites. A single te ...

10. Elastic Modulus Characterization of Nanocomposite Latex Coatings
Published: 9/24/2008
Authors: Aaron M Forster, Stephanie S Watson, Jonathan White
Abstract: The elastic modulus of a polystyrene-butyl acrylate latex coating was measured using three different techniques: instrumented indentation, dynamic mechanical analysis, and tensile testing. The coating was formulated with 25 nm and 250 nm diameter Ti ...
