Wicking Workshop: Tips and Tricks for Better Function
11:00 am (EST), December 11, 2019
Used in everything from cosmetics to writing instruments to diagnostics equipment, wicking systems are essential to controlling liquid volume capacity and fluid transfer rates. However, selecting the right material for your wicking application – from sintered particles to bonded fiber or open-cell foam – depends on the specific end-use product requirement.
Whether your product needs a more uniform flow and consistent, precise application for liquid makeup or a faster, more accurate sample test diagnosis, wicking can help your brand achieve maximum product performance.
In this webinar, learn how wicking works across multiple types of application in order to determine what type of wicking solution – including material, technology, and characteristics - is best suited for your application.
