Scratch Testing for Nanoindneter
Scratch testing involves the application of a constant or ramped load to an indenter while moving across the sample surface at a specified velocity. Scratch testing can shed light into numerous material systems including thin films, brittle ceramics, and polymers to name a few. Nanomechanics, Inc. offers the ability to perform scratch testing on the iNano, iMicro and NanoFlip nanoindentation systems. Some of the features of scratch testing include:
Multiple indenter geometries (Berkovich, Cube Corner, Spheres)
Pre-test and post-test surface topography scans
Indenter tip protection
Friendly software user interface with data analysis.
