We help you get better understanding at hardness testing: applications, case studies and technical articles from industry experts alike
While the Rockwell hardness testing scale is prevalent, it is best to consider the material thickness and softness to select the most suitable scale between Rockwell B (HRB) and Rockwell C (HRC). This article compares two types of Rockwell hardness to help you find the most ideal of the two for your hardness testing and conversion needs.
The Rockwell hardness test is a quick and effective way of testing materials with high accuracy and reliability. This post references the ASTM Rockwell hardness standard test and will teach you all you need to know.
For accurate and reliable results, scales provided by the ASTM should be used while performing any Vickers hardness test. This is the ASTM Vickers Hardness test standards.
The Brinell Hardness Test is one of the popular methods used to measure the hardness of metals. This method is used to inspect materials that have a rough surface, and other methods cannot be used. This article is an ASTM Brinell Hardness Standard Test Reference Guide.
The Vickers hardness test measures materials with small parts or thin sections. In contrast, the Brinell hardness is used to measure materials with a rough surface, and other methods are unsuitable. The Vickers to Brinell conversion chart can help you convert values between the Vickers and Brinell hardness scales.
When testing the hardness of a material, you may need to convert your test results from one scale to another. There are many ways to convert hardness measurements from one scale to another, but this HRC to Vickers hardness conversion guide will make it simple.
The Rockwell C scale can be used to measure almost any metal, alloy, or non-metallic substance. The Brinell hardness test measures the ability of a material to withstand an indentation from a standardized loading ball by measuring how deeply the ball penetrates the surface of the material. This article explores the conversion of Rockwell C to Brinell Hardness in more detail.
