Rtec Instruments provides several ASTM, DIN, ISO standard and customized test solutions to evaluate aerospace coatings, materials, and components under extreme environment conditions. This includes cryogenic, and high temperatures, vacuum, and more.
Aerospace Solutions We Offer
So many choices. No wrong answers.
Thermal Spray Coatings
Fretting and Wear Resistance
Studying fretting, coatings, and materials in the aerospace industry is critical for new technology, space exploration, aging aircrafts, structural integrity, riveted aircraft structure, aircraft engines, aluminum alloys, and titanium alloys. Rtec Instruments provides unequaled specifications for stroke and frequency control for fretting evaluation. Controlled stroke from 5 microns and frequency up to 500 Hz frequency across a wide temperature range makes it an ideal fretting wear tester for both industry and university research.
Perform high temperature materials testing up to 1200 °C. Testing condition can mimic real-life scenarios, allowing users to generate data essential for solving real-life problems. Characterize hot hardness, friction, fretting wear, coating adhesion, and much more under controlled atmosphere conditions. These include inert gas, vacuum, multiple sample stages, and more.
Low Temperature – Cryogenic
Characterize friction, wear, and adhesion of materials and coatings under in cryogenic conditions up to -120°C using liquid nitrogen. Test under vacuum or non vacuum conditions.
Test coatings and materials for space and aerospace industry under vacuum and controlled temperature. Measure friction, wear, adhesion, and durability under vacuum up to 10-7 torr. Simultaneously control environmental conditions, from -120 °C to 800 °C.
Abrasion, Erosion Resistance
Rtec Instruments provides several options for abrasion and erosion resistance testing. The Air Jet Erosion Tester, AJ-1000, performs repeated impact tests using a jet of gas loaded with abrasive particles to measure erosion of samples up to 900°C. The tribometer allows abrasion resistance testing in several modes across a wide load, speed, and temperature range. Measure roughness and the surface profile of rough test surfaces using confocal spinning disk technology on our profilometer.
Combine 4 imaging modes in one head. It requires only one click to alternate between the different imaging modes. Image any surface with ease – transparent, flat, dark, flat, curved, and more.
