With over 30 years of development, our technology is ideal for testing the strength and adhesion of coated surfaces. Using a wide range of impact forces at high frequency, we can assess the effect of mechanical stressing on the coating, the substrate and the interface between them. We can estimate the life-span of a coating, all made possible through development, continuous improvement and our novel algorithms.
Our state of the art Impact Tester jigs are suitable for evaluating the properties of coated surfaces, including PVD (physical vapor deposition) and CVD (chemical vapor deposition). This can drastically shorten the time to market for coating manufacturers introducing new technologies.
Standard impact testing where force pulses of varying duration and amplitude are applied perpendicular to the specimen.
Equipped with custom heating modules, our impact testing instruments can evaluate the strength of a specimen up to 400 C.
Equipped with custom vices to apply forces at varying angles, our instruments assess shear strength and creep behavior.
