The instrument measures the resilience of elastomers with hardness ranging from 30 to 85 IRHD points.
The Resilience is the ratio between energy yield and energy applied in the impact between the instrumet's hammer and the specimen having dimensional characteristics defined by the standards.
This measure provides useful indications regarding the dynamic behavior of an elastomer.
The measurement is performed by determining the rebound angle of the hammer following the impact.
The instrument provides direct reading of the resilience value.
The results of 5 tests performed on the specimen, their mean and standard deviation are displayed.
