Indentation tester




The CSM Indentation Testers are high precision instruments used for the determination of mechanical properties of thin films, coatings and substrates. Properties such as hardness and elastic modulus can be  etermined on almost any type of material: soft, hard, brittle or ductile. The operating principle of the instrument is as follows: An indenter tip, normal to the sample surface, is driven into the sample by applying an increasing load up to some preset value. The load is then gradually decreased until partial or complete relaxation of the material occurs.
