Hardness Testing

Hardness testing

The hardness of a metal refers to its ability to resist harder substances from being pressed into the surface, which usually reflects the difference in the chemical composition, structure, and processing technology of the material. The hardness of metals is one of the quick, simple, and economical testing methods to evaluate the mechanical properties of metals. The hardness test of rare earth metals can determine the suitability of the metal, and can also harden or soften the material through the test. Rare earth metals can be used in the production of energy materials, luminescent materials, abrasive materials, environmentally friendly materials, and permanent magnet materials, so they are very important to human life.


Our Services

For the tested metal materials and devices, the hardness represents the comprehensive performance of multiple physical quantities such as elasticity, plasticity, strength, toughness and wear resistance that react under certain pressure and test force. Alfa Chemistry can provide hardness testing on rare earth metals and their products. With experienced experts and advanced equipment, we can provide customers with professional, accurate, fast and convenient hardness testing services. Our services include but are not limited to:

❖ Hardness Testing

❖ Surface hardening or softening

❖ Custom and design plans

Why need hardness testing?

The hardness test can reflect the performance difference of metal materials under different chemical compositions, structures, and heat treatment process conditions. The hardness test is the most commonly used index for the mechanical properties of metal materials, which is a fast, simple, and economical test method for evaluating the mechanical properties of metals. Therefore, hardness testing is widely used to inspect metal properties, monitor the quality of heat treatment processes, and develop new materials.

Test classification

Brinell Hardness

Measuring gray cast iron, bearing alloys and metal materials

Vickers Hardness

Measure almost all metal materials currently used in industry

Rockwell Hardness

Simple operation, rapid measurement and high work efficiency

Micro Vickers Hardness

Suitable for evaluating the work hardening degree of thin wires
