Non-contact, real-time and optical online operation surface-tension or surface-energy dynes control systems
for running webs as like plastic films in general, coatings, laminates etc. does not exist worldwide. Due to the
broad application field of surface-treated or surface-non-treated webs of plastic film, foil, tear tape, non-
woven, fabrics, laminates or coated paper, there is unimaginable market potential here in respect of the inline
process measuring of the surface tension dynes or wettablity and an inline control of the dynes treatment
level and moderate quality control.

A large number of companies are interest in project cooperation, system development, prototyping,
manufacturing, testing, and worldwide sales, system purchasing and licensing in order of the working
principle of the ODSTM-1 Process Measuring System and former Patent application DE19543289.

Described is a method and device for optical dynamic inline surface tension measurement in which a
substrate web running vertically through a measuring gap is subjected to a chromatic light transmission from
two optical channels displaced by 90° to each other.

This light transmission is detectable by two optical detection systems located on the other side of the web.
Material-specific wavelength selection, light transmission angle changes, polarization slot diaphragms and
transverse displacements of the light beam feeder along the optical X-axis result in extreme scattering and
diffraction of the IR light photons in the boundary layer area on both sides of the sub nano layer within the
substrate web. Their transmitted light intensity enables, after detection and evaluation, the determination of a
direct relationship to the absolute surface tension.

And this entirely independent of the material specific influences like: material and surface consistency,
crystallinity, thickness, density, structure, polar grouping, temperature and type of pre-treatment.
