The Mechanised Scratch Tester is dedicated to coatings hardness evaluation based on the scratching resistance method.


A test panel is clamped and slowly moved whilst a stylus or alternative tool scratches the surface. Depending on test procedures, specified or variable loads can be applied to obtain different degrees of failure, from trace to destruction. A voltmeter indicates the contact of the tool with the metallic sample substrate. Max. panel size : 100x150x1.6mm (0.3mm coating).
