Can the adhesive be removed without leaving any residue?

Glue residues, residue analysis

The area microscope Roboscope for large samples can see transparent adhesive residues on glass and other reflective surfaces and uses image processing to calculate their amount. Quality control of removable adhesive.

# 1 Raw image

When self-adhesive materials such as temporary carpets are removed from their base, residues of the adhesive dispersion layer can remain. The transparent adhesive was made visible by the RoboskopREFLEX, seen here as white spots.

# 2 Image recognition glue residue

The image recognition has highlighted adhesive residues in red, up from a preselected size .

# 5 Calculating the area of adhesive residue

The image recognition has automatically captured the area of each adhesive residue and saved its position. The results can be transferred to Excel as a csv file or printed out in a customer-specific list with the overall percentage of the adhesive residues.
