HPE II Barcol – electronic handheld hardness tester.
Barcol’s measurement model applies to more rigid objects such as fiberglass, reinforced plastics, thermoplastic, or aluminum alloys.
The handheld design allows the HPE II Barcol to be used for measurements in a non-laboratory setting, and about 0.6kg of weight makes it easier to carry around.
