Need to find out how hard your materials are? Use our Rockwell Hardness testing machines, which measure the hardness of a sample by measuring the depth of penetration of an indenter.
Hardness is a characteristic of a material rather than a fundamental physical property. It is defined as the resistance to indentation, and it is determined by measuring the permanent depth of the indentation. The smaller the indentation after applying a fixed load, the harder the material.
Our Rockwell Hardness Tests are non-destructive and ASTM compliant. Our machines are fitted with a diamond cone or hardened steel ball indenter. There are even precise Rockwell Hardness Scales used for polymers and plastics.
