Surface wear analysis laboratory

As an industrialist you wish to characterize the surface wear of a material

What is a surface wear phenomenon?

Wear is the progressive deterioration of a material (metals, polymers, ceramics, composites). It is a natural process that occurs over time and can manifest itself in different ways, such as abrasion, corrosion, fatigue, cracking, discoloration or deformation.

Why perform a surface wear analysis?

Understanding and anticipating wear phenomena is a major challenge in the industrial sector. The analysis and characterization of failures following wear problems on a material will allow to identify the causes, whether they are external or internal to the material, in order to adapt your activity with durable and reliable surface treatments.
