3 Key Advantages of Instrumented Indentation vs. Conventional Hardness Testing: Automation, Thin Films and Elastic Modulus
Many new applications in the material industry require thinner coatings and are associated with increased quality expectations, robustness and lower costs. However, when it comes to mechanical characterization of thin films, most conventional methods for hardness testing have reached their limits. These limitations have negatively impacted the fast and efficient development and production of thin films and coatings.
Don't miss Anton Paar's live webinar discussing new technologies enabling accurate and affordable hardness measurements of thin coatings as a solution to the limitations of conventional hardness testing.
