The Barcol Impressor is a hand-held portable hardness tester. It is a convenient tool for testing the hardness of aluminum, aluminum alloys, copper, brass and other materials including plastics and fiberglass. The Impressor is designed for use on fabricated parts and assemblies as well as on raw stock.
Easy to Use - No experience required; can be used in any position and in any space that will allow for the operator’s hand. The hardness reading is instantly indicated on the dial, which is divided into one hundred graduations. No waiting, preloading or separate measurements.
Lightweight - The Impressor weighs only 1 lb. 2 oz. and comes complete with carrying case, adjusting wrench and two spare indenters.
The Impressor is best suited for testing homogeneous materials. Material of granular, fibrous or coarse structure will produce a wide variation in hardness readings because of the small diameter of the indenter point.
