NANOINDENTATION & SCRATCH TESTING

LAB SERVICES & CONSULTING

Nanoindentation testing and scratch testing are methods to characterize material mechanical properties on micro to nano scales. Test methods include micro to nano-indentation testing for comparative and quantitative hardness and elastic modulus determination, stress and strain analysis, DMA and CSM testing and scratch testing for evaluation of wear resistance, marring, cracking and film adhesion and cohesion.

Nanoindentation testing and scratch testing can be performed in conjunction with non-contact optical profilometer integration. NANOVEA profilometers use Chromatic Confocal technology, which uses wavelengths of light to accurately determine physical height. A variety of indenters and environmental modules are available for testing. A force-displacement curve obtained during indentation also provides indications of the sample material’s mechanical and physical properties.

NANOVEA has been redefining international standards in quality control and materials engineering for over two decades. This unmatched in-depth experience we have acquired throughout all industries and applications is now available to you in the form of lab testing services and personal consultations.
