Rtec Instruments provides several standard and customized tests solutions to evaluate polymer and polymeric coatings across many applications.
Solutions We Offer for Polymer Industry
So many choices. No wrong answers.
Scratch Adhesion, Resistance, Hardness
Using polymers is common in many consumer and industrial areas. They have several advantages, such as low density, chemical resistance and easy production. However, polymers have lower wear and scratch resistance. Therefore, One must monitor these properties carefully.
Study scratch adhesion, hardness, scratch resistance, and wear of polymer coatings or materials at nano, micro and macro scale. In-line integrated 3D profilometer provides 3D stitched images to comprehensively and conclusively characterize the failures.
Friction and Wear
The understanding of friction of polymers is of increasing importance because of the various new applications across several industries, such as healthcare, automotive, aerospace, and consumer goods.
Perform tribology, friction, and wear studies of coatings, materials and finished components under a wide test load range, motion, and various controlled environmental conditions.
Fretting Wear Test
The central role of polymers in the development of functional materials is fueled by advanced production of well-defined and optimized polymers. To study degradation due to fretting, wear, and corrosion, Rtec Instruments provides unequaled specifications for fretting tester. Our fretting testers provide controlled strokes from 5 microns to several mm, up to 500 Hz frequency, and during a variety of controlled environmental conditions.
