Indentation in acc. with DIN EN ISO 2815

The film hardness of a single-layer or laminated coating structure is determined by the indentation test according to Buchholz. The indenter is positioned shock-free on the horizontally aligned surface of the organic coating to be tested and taken off again after a test period of 30 seconds. The length of the lens-shaped indentation mark in the paint film is determined and, from this, the indentation resistance according to Buchholz can be calculated.
