Overview of Buchholz Indentation Hardness Tester

The Buchholz Indentation Tester is a reliable test method for evaluating the indentation resistance of plastic's deformable coatings. A beveled disc with a sharp edge is applied onto the test surface under a constant of 1.1lbs (500g). The test load is provided by a steel block holder. The trace left after 30s. load is measured with a 20X magnification illuminated microscope. The length of the indentation is inversely proportional to the hardness.

  • Conforms with ISO 2815 Standard
  • Stainless steel block
  • Circular tool is a double cone block
  • Circular tool and support of hard metal
  • Marking triangle for precise positioning.
  • 20 X magnification with graduated scale to measure indentation length.

Technical Parameters:

  • Indentation load:1.1 ± .01lb (500 ± 5g)
  • Accuracy of indentation reading:.004inch (0.1mm)
