Following a review of the role and applicability of tribology testing for film and coating research and development, the presenter will use the UMT TriboLab to perform microscratch and electrical contact resistance, friction, and wear tests of coatings. This will demonstrate the applicability of tribology testing for films and coatings within a tribosystem.

The presenter will show how to configure, execute, and then analyze the results of these tests, including a review of the various input and output data associated with each test. Understanding these parameters helps in the correct setup of the tribology test device and software.

These tests are an essential part of innovation across industries and fields; the data they provide supports efforts to engineer new and better coatings and surfaces via film/coating ranking and comparison, theoretical models verification, and failure analysis.
