print-friendly page Product replacement MUST vs Basalt-N2
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.

Read more 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 !
