Elcometer 501 Pencil Hardness Tester

The pencil hardness test, also referred to as the Wolff-Wilborn test, uses the varying hardness values of graphite pencils to evaluate a coating’s hardness. The Elcometer 501 Pencil Hardness Tester has been designed to ensure that the cylindrical pencil lead is maintained at a constant angle of 45° and exerts a force of 7.5N. The pencil lead, prepared beforehand using the special sharpener and abrasive paper, is inserted into the Elcometer 501 hardness tester and pushed over the smooth, flat … Read More

Elcometer 3080 Pencil Hardness Tester – Hardness Pencils

The set of Elcometer 3080 Hardness Testing Pencils is a simple but effective technique to evaluate the hardness of many coatings. The pencil lead, prepared beforehand by using the special pencil sharpener and rubbing it on fine abrasive paper (400 grade), is maintained at an angle of 45° and pushed with uniform pressure on to the sample, leaving either a superficial trace or causing destruction down to the substrate. The Elcometer 3080 Pencil Hardness Test is supplied complete with stand … Read More

Elcometer 3095 Buchholz Hardness Tester

Measuring a coating’s hardness using the indentation method, the Elcometer 3095 Buchholz Hardness Tester consists of a bevelled disc indenting tool which is fitted into a stainless steel block exerting a constant test load of 500g. The gauge is placed on to the coating and then removed after 30 seconds. The length of any subsequent indentation in the coating is measured using the graduated microscope. The result is expressed as units of Buchholz Indentation Resistance using the scale provided. Measure … Read More

Elcometer 3025 Scratch Tester

The Elcometer 3025 is a Motorised Scratch Tester used to test the resistance of many materials to scratching, shearing, gouging, marring, scraping and engraving. This portable instrument tests materials up to 12.7mm thick by 101mm square or round. The height of the scale beam is adjusted by the user to match the thickness of the sample. The tool, a conical diamond tip, is then placed on the sample and the instrument is activated by the user with the On / … Read More

Elcometer 3000 Clemen Hardness Tester

The Elcometer 3000 Manual Clemen Unit is a robust and simple to use instrument for evaluating the resistance to scratching of a coated surface. A tool is fitted with a hemispherical tip of 1mm diameter (standard), lowered gradually on to the sample surface which is then pulled linearly 60mm. Depending on the load applied, varying degrees of penetration of the tool into the coating are observed – from a superficial trace to total destruction.   The Elcometer 3000 Manual Clemen … Read More

Elcometer 3092 Sclerometer Hardness Tester

The Elcometer 3092 Sclerometer Hardness Tester measures the hardness of a coating by moving a Tungsten Carbide Tip over the coating with predetermined force. The body of the hardness testing instrument contains a cursor fitted with a screw lock and a round tip, compressed by one of the four springs corresponding to the four printed scales: • Grey spring: 0-3N • Red spring: 0-10N • Blue spring: 0-20N • Green spring: 0-30N The spring force can be set by the … Read More
