A new era of precision We measure what others estimate Anton Paar covers four of the most important test methods for mechanical surface characterization. Instrumented indentation testers provide mechanical properties of thin films, coatings, or substrates such as hardness and elastic modulus, creep, fatigue, stress-strain, elastic and plastic energies. Scratch testers are used to characterize film-substrate systems and to quantify parameters such as adhesive strength and friction force for determining coating adhesion, scratch resistance, and mar resistance for research and quality control....

Measuring principles Unique, patented synchronized panorama to be analyzed whenever, wherever Anton Paar is the exclusive holder of the patents US 8261600, and EP 2065695. The scratch tester’s panorama mode is the most important feature of the software. After the scratch, you have the option of recording the full panorama. When your panorama is recorded, you can re-analyze your results at any time. Patented (US 6520004 and EP 1092142) true penetration depth measurements for advanced elastic recovery studies The displacement sensor Dz monitors the surface profile of your sample before,...

Scratch testing: Instruments Measuring range of Anton Paar scratch testers MST³ Micro Scratch Tester The wide range tester for demanding users The Micro Scratch Tester is widely used to characterize the practical adhesion failure of thin films and coatings with a typical thickness below 5 μm. The Micro Scratch Tester is also used in the analysis of organic and inorganic coatings as well as soft and hard coatings. Nano Scratch Tester (NST3) Micro Scratch Tester (MST3) Applications include thin and multilayer CVD, PVD, PECVD, photoresist, lacquers, paints, and several other types of films....

Indentation testing: Features Measuring principles A wide range of testing possibilities: Hardness, elastic modulus, viscoelastic properties, creep compliance, and stressstrain curve Measuring principles The wide ranges of load and penetration depth enable you to measure the mechanical properties of a large variety of materials. Soft and hard materials as well as thin and thick coatings can be tested. Hardness, elastic modulus, and other properties such as viscoelasticity, creep compliance, and stressstrain curve can be determined in a single measurement. The instrumented indentation...

Indentation testing: Instruments UNHT³ Ultra Nanoindentation Tester MHT³ Microindentation Tester The ultimate high-resolution, high-stability nanoindenter The higher force range of instrumented indentation testing (IIT) The Ultra Nanoindentation Tester with real force sensors examines the mechanical properties of a material at the nanoscale. The UNHT³ virtually eliminates the effect of thermal drift and compliance due to its unique and patented active surface referencing system (EP 1828744 and US 7685868). Therefore, it is perfectly suited for long-term measurements on all types of...

Indentation testing: Instruments Choose your perfect combination UNHT³ Bio Bioindenter The Bioindenter is a unique device for measuring local mechanical properties of soft and biological samples. It combines instrumented indentation with the requirements of testing of soft samples, samples immersed in liquid, and biological samples. The concept of UNHT³ Bio is based on the successful ultra nanoindentation technology with extended travel range, improved force resolution, and full compatibility of testing in fluids. Easy characterization of time-dependent properties such as creep, flow...
