Hard Material Coatings, PVD, CVD, DLC
The technical possibilities achievable through surface coatings made from modern materials are virtually infinite. To ensure that PVD coatings or CVD surfaces, layers made from DLC, NiP or other hard materials can function efficiently, for example as protection against wear, it is necessary to examine their microhardness and other properties thoroughly.
Determine microhardness, thickness and composition of carbide coatings, TiN surfaces and other hard materials.
Measurement technology for very thin, vapor-deposited surface coatings.
Test the coating thickness and mechanical properties of diamond like carbon (DLC).
