triboindenteurHysitron TriboIndenter

Nanomechanical and nanotribological test instrument. With a maximum load capacity of about 10 000µN and different tip choices (Berkovith, conical, cube corner and flat punch), this instrument is well adapted to the local characterization of mechanical properties (hardness and young modulus) of any kind of material from polymers to metals. Scratch tests can also be performed with this equipment.
