Gardner Co. Debuts Buchholz Indentation Tester

Friday, August 13, 2010

Comment | More

The Buchholz Indentation Tester BH2000, new from the Paul Gardner Co., is a standard test for measuring the hardness of coatings.
 
The set consists of a calibrated slip-on weight with a special cutter, an illuminated microscope, a level gage, a digital dual timer, two markers with template, and three AAA batteries.

The calibrated slip-on weight with special cutter is positioned on the test specimen for a set period of time. The length of the indentation on the coating is an indication of the hardness of the surface. The test is mandatory in Qualicoat, QIB and GSB accredited laboratories.

The supplier notes the relevant standards and specifies the steps for use at http://www.gardco.com/pages/hardness/buchholz_BH2000.cfm.

More information is also available by calling 800-762-2478.
