Coating Characterization

Coatings can improve the application properties of a substrate significantly. For development and application of such coating systems the relevant properties have to be measured in a precise and reproducible manner.

Our main fields of expertise are tribology, contact mechanics and surface acoustic wave spectroscopy with extensive know-how in methodology, application and process development. Our characterization comprises all kinds of coatings with emphasis on PVD coatings and superhard amorphous carbon coatings (ta-C).
