A tool is fitted with an hemispherical tip of 1mm (0.04”) diameter (standard), lowered gradually on to the sample surface which is then pulled linearly 60mm (2.36”).
Depending on the load applied, varying degrees of penetration of the tool into the coating are observed - from a superficial trace to total destruction.
