Hardness is a measure of how resistant solid matter is to various kinds of permanent shape change when a force is applied. Hardness is dependent on ductility, elastic stiffness, plasticity, strain, strength, toughness, viscoelasticity, and viscosity.

Indentation hardness correlates linearly with tensile strength. This relation allows an economic method of Non-destructive testing of bulk metal components.

Hardness Examinations are performed using modern digital equipment offering results in all current hardness scales.

Hardness Examination can be carried out in-house or on-site to meet your requirements.
