ASTM Standard Tests

American Society for Testing Materials (ASTM) Standard Mechanical and Tribological Tests

UMT testers can perform many ISO, ASTM and DIN standard tests. Some of them include:

  • mechanical tests
  • friction tests
  • wear tests
  • scratch tests
  • adhesion tests
  • hardness tests

Shown below is are brief descriptions of some of the standard tests which can be done on the tool.
