Dynamic Ultra Micro Hardness Tester
A new evaluation system for measuring the material strength of micro regions, such as semiconductors, ceramics, hard disks, vapor deposited films, and thin coating layers, not addressed by previous hardness testers. It can also be used to evaluate the hardness of plastics and rubbers.
Features of Dynamic Ultra Micro Hardness Tester
- Capable of measuring micro-structure constituent components within a sample, not just overall hardness.
- Measurement of materials exhibiting high light absorption, which is difficult for conventional methods, is easily performed on the Dynamic Ultra Micro Hardness Tester.
- The Dynamic Ultra Micro Hardness Tester is capable of measuring brittle samples, such as glass and ceramics, either with or without forming cracks.
- Use of the optional flat-tip indenter provides easy measurement of particle proof stress. This data is useful for improvement of the pretreatment technique or fine particles.
