We are the USA distributor for Microset high-resolution replication materials for engineering inspection. Applications include crack-characterization, surface damage assessment, surface-finish, recording fracture surfaces and defects, and metallography. Microset is used for failure analysis and where other methods are not practical, such as replicating a scratch or pit for measurement in the lab when field measurement is impractical.
Surface roughness "Profilometer" instruments are used to measure a surface's profile in order to quantify its roughness. Brands include: Time, Keiyu, and more.
