Coatings are applied to a variety of surfaces for aesthetic and/or functional purposes. In general, coatings are used for corrosion resistance, adhesion properties and wear resistance. Coatings are generally applied and then undergo a curing or solidification process. Understanding the microstructural aspects of the coating properties enables engineers to develop performance-enhancing coatings as well as optimize processing techniques.
MVMTC offers a broad set of coating characterization techniques to measure the mechanical properties of coatings including micro and macrohardness, corrosion testing, coating thickness, abrasion testing and more.
