From protective laquer coatings all the way to hard PVD layers, the quality of the surface decides if a part works as intended. But how can we realiably assess the quality of a surface?
This is precisely where Fischer jumps in. With Fischer's Nanonidentation and Scratch Test instruments, you can accurately measure mechanical properties of thin surface coatings. Determining mechanical surface properties allows you to conclude on the performance of the surface. Is the laquer sufficiently cured to be resistant against certain chemicals and to withstand stone chipping? Is the adhesion of the TiN layer strong enough to hold on to the steel substrate even under stress?
Fischer's HM and ST series are powerful but easy to use instruments. The portfolio ranges from quick to use lab testers to production quality control instruments which can measure multiple samples fully automatic. Additionally, a choice of useful accessories lets you equip your instrument exactly the way you need it. Have look at our Nanoindentation instruments and Scratch Testers to find out more!
