The Specialist

The Zwick 3106 hardness tester is especially popular for ball indentation hardness tests on plastics to ISO 2039-1. In this test an indenter is pressed into the surface of the specimen with a defined force. The indentation depth is measured while under load and has a mathematical relationship to the recorded hardness in N/mm².

After the test the data can be transferred to our reliable testXpert II testing software, allowing you to create the necessary professional reports.
