Buchholz Indentation Tester

The definition of hardness has, in the past, caused misunderstandings within the paint industry. Most coatings are viscoelastic, and hence will indent to some extent. DIN 55 945 defines hardness as follows: Hardness is the resistance of a coating to a mechanical force, such as pressure, rubbing or scratching.
The Buchholz tester is a reliable test for plastic deformable coatings. Features include:
Simple and easy to use device
Portable for use in the field
Optional microscope to evaluate the indentation mark
Compliant with ISO 2815.
