Hardness Testing

Hardness Testing measures a material’s strength by determining resistance to penetration. Global NDT Engineers, performs the hardness test on metal materials.

Global NDT offers a variety of micro and macro hardness testing services, including Rockwell, Brinell, Vickers and Knoop testing. All test specimens can be prepared on site by our machine shop for speedy turnaround.

ASTM hardness testing is performed, as well as testing to other standards and specifications required for the type of material and application.

The Hardness Test is extremely useful in material selection because it provides a hardness value which indicates how easily a material can be machined and how well it will wear. Material hardness testing is also valuable in making decisions about treatments and coatings.
