The Falex Tribology lab, with more than 16 tribometers covering a wide range of ASTM, DIN, ISO and CEC lubricant and material friction and wear tests, is at your service for customer testing
Hard Chromium alternative EU project succesfully concluded
This month, we have succesfully concluded our current 'Hardalt' European research project on finding alternatives for the standard Hard Chromium coatings.
Some alternatives, specifically Nickel Phosphorous based coatings with nano-particle strengthening, are showing promising results.
Falex have screened a number of these Ni-P-nanocomposites for a real industrial application with our 50-station parallel wear tester and found specifically 4 good alternatives for dry and lubricating sliding.
More information can be found on the project website http://www.hardalt.eu and or our LinkedIn page
For more information on these promising coatings and our way of validating them for industrial applications, feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org !
As of May 2016, the Tetra-Falex MUST microtribometer system will no longer be supported and is replaced by the Tetra Basalt-N2 testing platform which has, among other configurations, a microNewton reciprocating configuration.
This configuration completely replaces and improves the MUST specifications.
A limited offer is given to current users : in return for your MUST test system, you are eligible for a substantial discount on the new test system. Please contact Dr. Dirk Drees for more information on this.
