  • Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) with EDS analysis
  • Nanoscratch
  • Nanoindentation
  • Micro-nano indentation
  • Profilometer
  • Hazmeter
  • Granulometry

 

Surface analysis

Main Uses

  • Chemical composition
  • Adhésion of coating
  • Surface mechanical properties
  • Particles size
  • Determination of surface tension (liquids) and surface energy (solids)
  • Validate the surface etching or preparation
