Hardness and Scratch

Both Hardness and Scratch measurements are important to determine the resistance of a material to permanent indentation damage.

There are a variety of instruments that can be used to perform these tests and measure the results, helping to predict real world behaviour of a coating.

From simple scratch tools to pendulum hardness testers, we have a comprehensive selection of test equipment and shore and barcol hardness meters that are suitable for many different applications, and in accordance with recognised international test standards.

We also supply scratch tools, both manual and automatic, for the preparation of test specimens prior to corrosion testing.
