Analysis and prediction of soft materials like pressure-sensitive adhesives utilizing simcenter culgi modeling

Soft material chemistry modeling necessitates a large amount of experimental data. Traditional modeling without three-dimensional structures is incapable of handling mechanical or inhomogeneous systems, is frequently physics-based, and does not necessitate large data sets for calibration. Furthermore, the typical PSA development cycle experiment without automation or robotics can cause unneeded delays.

Based on solid physics, the Simcenter Culgi coarse-grained molecular thermodynamics simulation methodology handles micro and macroscopic phase separation, reactions, and mechanics without calibration. Novel microscopic phase behavior calculations in polymeric materials are evaluated and forecasted in this white paper for nanometer-scale structures in pressure-sensitive adhesives (PSAs).

Simcenter Culgi software benefits complex soft materials analysis for the modeling of pressure-sensitive adhesives

On a scale of 1-100 nm, the modeling library can handle cross-linked systems, reactive systems, evaporating or demixing systems, and any combination thereof, combining quantum, molecular, and coarse-grained simulations, thermodynamics, and chemical informatics. Simcenter Culgi is state-of-the-art multiscale modeling software.

Simcenter Culgi used in the modeling of pressure-sensitive adhesives has advantages. This software solution:

  • Models any chemical mixture/ additive or context

  • Includes a coarse-grained 3D additive and material model

  • Determines each chemical's thermodynamic distribution in minutes

  • Calculates crosslink density, entanglements, and mechanics using 3D particle-based simulation models
