Hardness test on rubber or rubber-like materials, mainly on rubber rollers in the paper industry, as well as on test specimens with a flat surface from a material thickness of 13 mm.
The electronic dial gauge shows the penetration depth directly in 0.00 mm units and is equipped with a zero setting option. This has the advantage that the display of the dial gauge can be reset to zero by pressing a button as soon as the indenter with the measuring rod is raised by approx. 3 mm by lowering the body of the measuring device.
With a vertical spindle integrated on the back of the device, the dial gauge can be gently moved up and down. The prescribed total force of 9.8 N is applied by lowering the lateral load lever. The measurement result is read after a test time of 60 seconds.
