Hardness Test Hammers > Elcometer 181
This simple to use gauge consists of a spring loaded plunger which, when released, strikes the surface with fixed and constant impact energy. During the rebound stroke, the mass moves a pointer that indicates the maximum point of return and at the same time indicates a reference value called Rebound Number.
This number, converted by the correlations available on the hammer, gives the compression resistance value in respect of the impact angle.
The concrete hammer is supplied with plastic carrying case, grinding stone, calibration certificate and instructions.
- Impact Energy 2.207 Nm
- Supplied with abrasive stone to prepare test surface
- Aluminium body
- Rebound value indicated on test hammer
- Rebound value chart on body, for quick calculation of compressive strength
- Curve selection on chart dependant on testing angle
