3D Scratch Adhesion Tester UST-2 Overview

  • Patented In-line 3D Profilometer
  • Nano scratch, Micro scratch, Macro ¬†scratch
  • Optimized 3D profilometer at nm resolution for any surface
  • Scratch Flat or curved surface

The UST-2 scratch tester analyzes scratch adhesion, scratch hardness, and scratch resistance at nano, micro, and macro scale. In addition, the in-line integrated 3D profilometer provides 3D stitched images to comprehensively and conclusively characterize the coating failures. Advanced capacitive sensors allow measuring penetration depth with the resolution needed to differentiate coatings that have similar properties.
