Hardness and modulus mapping

We can provide a distribution of hardness and modulus across an area of interest. This can highlight areas of non-uniformity due to structural anomalies, variation in surface treatments or simply changes in properties at joints and boundaries.


Depth profiling load/partial-unload technique

To investigate how hardness and modulus vary from the surface into depth in your samples. 


Thin films and coatings (from a few nm to about 1 µm thick) need to be optimised both in the mechanical properties and tribological performance. Nano-scratch tests can provide the tribological performance of you materials and coatings.
