Scratch Testers

RSS
Scratch testing generally involves moving a diamond tip across the surface of a sample with an ever increasing or constant load. The test is commonly monitored with a video camera so that different modes of danage can be determined and correlated to the load applied. While typically used to measure scratch resistance, the test can also be used to compare the relative performance or effectiveness of coatings and surfaces.
