Join our webinar to learn more about comprehensive coating characterization on December 9th.
Coatings are deposited in order to modify the tribological and mechanical performances of surfaces in various applications, spanning from cutting tools to medical devices, optics, consumer goods and other industrial machine parts.
Coatings can be based on polymers, ceramics, metals, or advanced combined microstructures, ranging from nanometer to several micrometer thickness.
They are aimed to improve the wear resistance, reduce the friction and corrosion, or/and enhance the cosmetics appearances among other things.
Coatings properties such as hardness, adhesion, mar resistance, elastic modulus, friction, roughness, durability, perception, haptics and touch etc. are of the utmost importance and must be characterized with high accuracy.
Several of these properties are interrelated and many standards and testing methods are required to cover above properties.
Rtec-Instruments MFT-5000 Multi Function Tribometer is a comprehensive tool that serves to characterize several mechanical properties of coatings for any application on the same platform. The unique combination of multiple measuring techniques makes the Rtec Instruments platform the most powerful instrument in coating characterization.
