Fabric Surface Area Measurement Using 3D Profilometry

In this application the Nanovea ST400 Profilometer was used for surface area measurement of a fabric surface to determine amount of projected and developed surface areas as well as a contour analysis of the texture on the surface.

Fabric Surface Area Measurement Using 3D Profilometry

Here are examples of materials we tested this month:


• Nanoindentation hardness of epoxy coatings
• Nanoindentation hardness of silicone coatings
• Nanoscratch of silicone coatings
Nanoscratch failure of stent coatings
• Nanowear friction of capillary tubes
• Microindentation compression of micro features
• Microindentation fracture of micro ceramics

3D Non-Contact Profilometry:

• Roughness of mini turbines
• Roughness of films
• Texture of hard rubber samples
• Flatness of plastic molds
• Flatness of seal
• Depth & Area of micro channels
• Topography of oxidized samples
• Dimension of micro aerospace parts


• Friction testing various lubrications on steel
• Wear testing various hard coatings
