Nano induration tester is used to determine the mechanical properties of thin films (hardness, modulus of elasticity) formed from different
materials. Using a suitable indenter, the load is applied up to a maximum value that is perpendicular to the sample surface, and after the maximum
load value is reached, a gradual restoration is performed. Load (N) – Depth (nm) curves obtained by loading and restoring are analyzed
and the mechanical properties of the sample are determined.
Scratch tester is used to determine the mechanical properties of the thin film and coating surfaces such as refraction, deformation and adhesion.
It is also used to characterize the friction and adhesion force of the backing and film system.
