Grindometer acc to Hegman, Model 232, was developed to establish the fineness of grind of coating materials.  

The instrument is used to produce a liquid wedge-shaped specimen of the test substance.  It can be easily ascertained by visual inspection where the grain size is larger than the local dimensions of the wedge channel.  

A reading of the channel depth where the boundary between the smooth and the uneven surface areas determines the fineness of the grind.

The Grindometer consists of a block of hardened steel which has been specially treated to ensure dimensional stability. Two precisely defined, wedge-shaped channels are cut into the block. The depth of each channel can be read off on a μm scale engraved into one of the longitudinal sides (length 125 mm) of the block. The corresponding Hegman scale (HS) is shown on the opposite side.


Standards: ISO 1524, EN 21 524, DIN 53 203, ASTM D 1210.
