3D Scratch Tester

Rtec 3D scratch tester equipment to study scratch adhesion, scratch hardness, scratch resistance at nano, micro and macro scale. Inline integrated 3D profiler allows to create 3D stitched images to comprehensively and conclusively characterize the coating failures. Advanced capacitive sensors allows to measure penetration depth with resolution needed to differentiate coatings that have similar properties.
