Surface Hardness test (Barcol)
UNI EN 4278
Hardness is a value that indicates the deformable plasticity of a material. It is defined as resistance to permanent deformation. Hardness tests determine the resistance of a material to being penetrated by another.
Abrasion Resistance test
UNI ISO 9352
This test determines the resistance to wear and tear of the product as a result of abrasion, measured as mass loss. For Tecnoril®, a lower mass loss has been recorded than for the best polyester-based composite, which indicates higher resistance.
