Hardness testers | Choosing the right hardness tester
A hardness tester is a measuring instrument used to assess the stiffness or strength of a material. Hardness testers are used to determine the resistance of a material to deformation by means of a harder tool, most often a diamond cone or steel ball, which penetrates the surface of the material being tested. The hardness tester then measures the penetration depth of the tool and the impression left by the tool on the surface of the sample. Different test methods...

How to choose this product
hardness-tester

Hardness testers are employed in tests designed to monitor the mechanical resistance of materials.

Applications

These devices not only monitor materials quality, but also indicate the characteristics of minerals. Metals testing primarily uses the Brinell, Vickers and Rockwell methods. The Shore method is generally employed when testing plastics.

Technologies

There are three different hardness tests, each making use of a different device. An indentation test measures the resistance of the material to deformation. Scratch testing determines the resistance of the surface to scoring with another object. The third procedure tests for resilience.

How to choose

Choice will depend on the hardness range to be tested and the required degree of accuracy. Size, shape and other characteristics of the object also must be taken into account, as well as the response time of the device. Another important factor is whether the tester will be used on just one or several different materials.
