Hardness Testing

We can perform all of the common indentation hardness tests for metal, plastic and rubber materials.

Both macro hardness testing techniques like Rockwell or Brinell and micro techniques like Vickers or Knoop are accurately determined with our modern digital equipment.

The Rockwell or Barcol hardness test method can also be used on plastic and composite materials while the Durometer method is usually employed on rubber or elastomeric materials.
