In the automotive industry paint coatings are used as protection from corrosion and external damage. These paint/lacquers are exposed to environmental influences such as extreme temperature fluctuations or moisture and salt. Automotive coatings must exhibit a certain toughness to make them resistant to stone chips and scratches. This requires the right balances between hardness and elast...

Measuring the true mechanical properties of micronscale intermediate layers in thin multilayer foils –without influence from the surrounding layers – is a challenge that very few instruments can meet. It takes highly responsive nanoindentation technology and very precise positioning of the indenter. Read more...More Product Announcements from Fischer Technology, Inc.
The Newage® MT91 System is an automatic microhardness testing system that uses the Rockwell method for the hardness result. Hardness is measured based on the depth of penetration rather than using an optical system to determine hardness based on the impression diameter. The main advantages of the MT91 Series are its very fast test cycle coupled with its incredible test ac... Read more...More Product Announcements from Ametek Test & Calibration Instruments

Measuring how easily a mineral can be scratched, is the main purpose of a hardness tester. It is measured on the Mohs scale. This can also be defined as the relative resistance of a metal or other material to denting or bending, as well as scratching. Types include Rockwell (most common), Brinell and Vickers.
