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. Mandatory test in Qualicoat, QIB and GSB accredited laboratories.
