The CAM-Plus is contact angle meter that provides a patented method ("half angle") for quantifying surface energy relative to other measurements on other surfaces. This information makes it possible for accurate prediction of a surface reaction to coatings, eliminating costly trial-and-error methods. It eliminates the difficulties associated with tangent angle measurement methods.
Surface energy is most evident in how a surface interacts with an applied liquid. Like color and texture, surface energy is a physical property. When paint is applied to a sheet of glass, it will typically "ball up" because it does not stick well to the surface. This is surface energy in action. Conversely, when liquid is applied to a different material and disperses, this is also surface energy.
