Product Description:

Qualtech Products Industry Dur-O-Test is a professional DIN 55656 Hardness Pen to instantly determine the Hardness, the Wear Resistance and the Scratch Resistance of Paint Films and Coatings attached to sample surfaces and substrates on the go.

This professional Hardness Pen is suitable for a wide range of samples and sample surfaces including even surfaces, convex surfaces, concave surfaces of larger and smaller size.

The Dur-O-Test is performed by adjusting the Hardness Level of the Pen-Tip with the continuously adjustable Hardness Level Dial. After selecting the Hardness Level a line with a length of around 10mm is marked on the Coating Surface or Sample Surface with the Pen-Tip at a speed of approximately 10mm/sec. This marking is visually examined for scratches or damages in the Surface Coating or the Sample Surface to instantly determine the Hardness Level of the Coating or the Sample Surface.

This precision DIN 55656 Hardness Pen is engineered to monitor and to test the Mechanical Resistance, the Surface Hardness and the Scratch Resistance of Surface Coatings for research and quality management at your laboratory and on the go.

Depending on the specific test requirements there is a variety of different test methods suggested for the measurement of the Coating Hardness and Coating Scratch Resistance. One of the most used test methods is the Hardness Test according DIN 55656, the Hardness Pen Test.

This professional DIN 55656 Dur-O-Meter is designed and engineered offering a precision engineered Spring System combined with a precision engineered Pen-Tip, a continuously adjustable Hardness Level, high quality materials, high accuracy and high precision, a user-friendly application, user-friendly sample handling, a Carrying Box, an ergonomic design, reliable performance, longevity and much more.
