By TQC Sheen, our paint testing specialist brand, the TQC Sheen Mechanized Scratch Test Tester is dedicated to coatings hardness evaluation based on the scratching resistance method.  

A test panel is clamped down and slowly moved at 35 mm/s whilst a stylus with a tungsten carbide tip rubs and potentially scratches the coated surface. Depending on test procedures, specified loads can be applied to obtain different degrees of failure, from trace to destruction. A simple meter indicates the stylus contacting the metal sample substrate.   

The scratch tester comes with the weight set required by the current ISO 1518-1. The weight set specified by the preceding standard is optionally available  

Mechanized Scratch Test Scope of Supply:

  • Mechanized Scratch Tester SH705  
  • ISO1518-1 20 N set of weights: 2 x 0,5 N, 1 x 1,0 N, 2 x 2 N, 1 x 4 N and 1 x 10 N and 1 spindle  
  • Hemispherical 0,5 mm radius stylus A  
  • Power cord

Material testing

The scratch test is a method used to assess the hardness or abrasion resistance of a material. It involves scratching the surface of the material with a standardized tool, such as a diamond-tipped stylus, and measuring the resulting damage or deformation. After the scratching process is complete, resulting scratch is examined visually or using specialized equipment, such as a microscope or profilometer.
