Ball indentation

The ball indentation hardness is the quotient of the applied load and the surface area of the impression that is present underneath a ball after 30 s at a given load.

The results are required for research and development, quality controls and acceptance or rejection based on specifications. The test method is also suitable for hard rubber.
