Guide to complete mechanical characterization in the automotive industry


This presentation will introduce you to the automotive sector from the perspective of its relationship to mechanical surface testing techniques. The main components of the automotive sector will be addressed. Moreover, this webinar will demonstrate the methods for measuring adhesion and scratch resistance, hardness, friction and wear, as well as thickness of a wide variety of coatings and materials used in the automotive industry.

The main topics will be:

  • Measurement of adhesion, hardness, friction and coating thickness on various engine parts
  • Measurement of mar resistance on car paint
  • Simulation of friction and wear on brake pads
  • Measurement of elastic behavior and temperature effects on tires
  • Adhesion and simulation of friction on windows and windshields
  • Measurement of scratch resistance on car interior parts
