CSM Instruments develops, manufactures and commercializes high quality instruments for measuring surface mechanical properties in both research and industrial fields.Scratch Testers: Used to measure characteristics such as adhesion of a coating, delamination effects, or cracking in order to optimize coating techniques and determine failure points of the film-substrate system.Indentation Testers: Used to determine the hardness and elastic modulus of coatings and surfaces with extremely high precision at the macro-, micro-, and nano-scales to aid in material selection and development.Tribometers: Used to measure the frictional coefficient and wear rate between material pairs, as well as perform lifetime analyses.Additionally, we have a thorough sample testing service and demonstration laboratory in Boston, MA where you can send us your samples for evaluation or take a firsthand look at our instruments.
