Polymers are being employed in innumerable applications. QCM-D is successfully used to monitor build-up of polymer layers and characterize them in terms of hydration/solvation, crosslinking and interaction with other molecules. The multi-frequency measurements and adapted modeling software enables quantification of the film thickness and viscoelastic properties. Measurement examples can be found below along with related application notes.
