Rtec Instruments provides several standard and customized test solutions to evaluate polymer materials and polymeric coatings across many applications. With many testing solutions, we offer comprehensive analysis that aids in all stages of polymer manufacturing and research.
Solutions We Offer for Polymer Industry
Scratch Adhesion, Resistance, Hardness
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
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 universal profilometer combines 4 imaging modes (confocal, interferometer, dark field and bright field) in one head. This is very beneficial for the polymer industry as advantages from seamlessly using all techniques allow measurement of any form of polymer using one optical profilometer.
