Hardness Test is performed on different products to measure the resistance of material to permanent change in shape due to the force applied to it. The hardness of the materials is dependent on the intermolecular bonds or behavior of the materials. There are different types of hardness tests that are performed on the materials to measure the strength and quality of the materials such as rebound hardness, indentation hardness, scratch hardness and many more. The hardness of the material depends on various factors of the material such as elasticity, ductility, strength, stiffness, viscoelasticity, viscosity, toughness and many more. Some of the hard matter on which a hardness test is performed are metals, concrete, ceramics, and so forth.
The key feature to understand the mechanism behind measuring the hardness understands the metallic microstructure or the arrangement of atoms. The hardness of the materials can be measured using high-quality of testing instruments. Presto Stantest offers high-quality of testing machines to measure the hardness of the materials. These testing instruments are designed under the strict supervision of highly skilled technocrats keeping in mind the standards that are announced by various standardization authorities.
