We provide a wide range of devices to measure contact angle, liquid surface tension, solid surface tension, ice adhesion, and temperature cycle durability of nano-engineered surfaces. We also develop useful software for surface engineering applications.
We present a variety of services for our academic and industrial partners using innovative methods and precise apparatus by considering international surface thermodynamics standards.
Jikan Surface Nano-Engineering Company is a spin-off from SNE Research Center at the Mechanical engineering department of University of Tehran. Jikan was officially registered in 2015. Our interests and area of expertise includes manufacturing laboratory equipment, fabricating nano engineering surface (e.g. superhydrophobic and superhydrophilic surfaces) and conducting relevant researches.
Jikan CAG-20 PE is an automatic device that measures static and dynamic contact angles (advancing, receding, roll-off and hysteresis), surface and interfacial tensions, as well as surface free energy.
Jikan CAG-20 SE is a semi-automatic device that measures static and dynamic contact angles (advancing, receding, roll-off and hysteresis), as well as surface and interfacial tensions.
Jikan CAG-10 is an automatic device that measures static and dynamic contact angles (advancing, receding, roll-off and hysteresis), surface and interfacial tensions, as well as surface free energy.
Jikan TTC-40 is a semi-automatic device that simulates and controls the surface temperature and humidity.
Jikan TTC-30 is a semi-automatic device that simulates and controls the surface temperature
Jikan IAT-40 is your finest solution to evaluate icephobic surfaces. The device measures the shear stress between the desired substrate and the ice formed on its surface.
Jikan RMC-10 is a laboratory thermoelectric mini chiller, used for cooling by re-circulating the coolant. It can be used either for cooling the liquid itself or as a heat exchanger to chill any other laboratory equipment.
Jikan CAG-Lite is an educational Contact Angle Goniometer, that measures contact angle and surface tension. With an easy to use procedure and a user-friendly software it offers variety of tests to teach and learn.
Jikan DCM-10 is a laboratory dip coater, used for coating the samples in an easy, fast, reliable and repeatable way. The device offers a wide range of speeds and stop times and could be programmed with desired cycles.
Jikan SPM-10 is an accurate syringe pump for injection/suction of fluids with high precision in range of nanolitres to mililitres. SPM-10 has an apt simple UI, ability of suction and injection, high reliability and safety qualities and programmable via a PC.

In Jikan, we offer you superhydrophobic and superhydrophilic coatings as a service. These are micro and nano structured coatings on certain metals (Aluminum, Steel, Copper, Titanium, and Magnesium) which have superhydrophobic and superhydrophilic properties. The coatings could be done on arbitrary shapes such as foils, pipes, nets, airfoils, impellers and many other geometries.
In Jikan, we measure various types of contact angle such as static, advancing and receding contact angles using our contact angle goniometer as a service. Contact angle measurement is mostly used to determine hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity, wettability and self-cleaning properties of materials. This device measures contact angle using sessile drop method, it also can perform drop vaporization test, infiltration test and pendant drop test.
