Hardness is a mineral’s ability to resist being scratched. Minerals that are not easily scratched are hard. You test the hardness of a mineral by scratching its surface with a mineral of a known hardness. Mineralogists use the Mohs Hardness Scale, shown in Table below, as a reference for mineral hardness.

Mohs - Vickers hardness comparison: This chart compares the hardness of index minerals of the Mohs hardness scale (an integer scale) with their Vickers hardness (a continuous scale). Mohs hardness is a resistance to being scratched, while Vickers hardness is a resistance to indentation under pressure. The graph shows the great difference.

(Shore was born in and lived until , creating the ‘Shore’ scale in the s.) There are close to 15 different scales, depending on their intended use.

Other Hardness Scales. The Rockwell, Brinell, and Vickers are the most common hardness scales, but there are many others: – Shore Scleroscope – Knoop – Leeb (HLD): Leeb is a rebound hardness test that was developed in to provide a portable hardness test for metals.

A variety of hardness-testing methods are available, including the Vickers, Brinell, Rockwell, Meyer and Leeb) gh it is impossible in many cases to give an exact conversion, it is possible to give an approximate material-specific comparison table for steels.

Shore, who developed a measurement device called a durometer in the s. A chart showing general hardness comparisons is below.

Hardness comparison table The comparison table below is valid only for carbon steels, low alloy steels and cast steels in the hot formed and heat treated condition acc.

to ISO For high alloyed and / or cold treated steels (eg.A2, A4) there are considerable differences to be expected. Comparison of Hardness Scales: The following table compares the various hardness scales. Assumptions are that the metal tested is homogeneous to a depth several times that of the indentation.

The Janka scale is used to determine the relative hardness of particular domestic or exotic wood species. The Janka test measures the amount of force required to embed a " steel ball into the wood to half of its diameter.

Woods with a higher rating are harder than woods with a lower rating. The scale used in the table is pounds-force. SMOOTHON SINCE Created Date: 11/17/ PM. The Rockwell scale is a hardness scale based on indentation hardness of a material.

The Rockwell test measuring the depth of penetration of an indenter under a large load (major load) compared to the penetration made by a preload (minor load). There are different scales, denoted by a single letter, that use different loads or indenters.

Table gives a comparison of the various scales of hardness measurement, for the convenience of conversion from one scale to another. The values are reasonable for most metals but conversion errors can occur if the material is prone to work hardening. The ASTM specifies thirty different Rockwell scales, each employing a different combination of test forces and indenter types, which allows the testing Test Procedure of most types of metallic materials and products.

When Rockwell hardness is called out by a product standard or specification, the choice of scale is usually specified.

In situations where the user must choose the appropriate. The table below shows comparisons of various hardness scales. The information contained in the table is based on the assumption that the metal tested is homogeneous to a.

hardness number may then be read directly from the scale. The hardness of ceramic substrates can be determined by the Rockwell hardness test, according to the specifications of ASTM E This test measures the difference in depth caused by two different forces, using a dial gauge.

Using standard hardness conversion tables, the. As you can see from the chart below, there is overlap on the different scales. For example a material with a Shore hardness of 95A is also a Shore 45D. The Shore 00 Hardness Scale measures rubbers and gels that are very soft. The Shore A Hardness Scale measures the hardness of flexible mold rubbers that range in hardness from very soft and.

Wood Charts: Density, Hardness, Stiffness and Strength Here you'll find charts that break down the wood types by density, hardness, stiffness and strength. Each wood species is listed in alphabetical order on each chart with its corresponding related number next to each species.

Physical metallurgists and students taking related courses will find the book invaluable.

When looking at knives you will often see a number in the specs with “RC” after it. This number represents the Rockwell Rating. The Rockwell rating is a scale that is used to measure the hardness of a material. An example is stainless steel AUS-8, which usually Rc. The Rockwell hardness test is the industry standard for knives.As you can see from the graphic, there is overlap on the different scales.

For example a material with a Shore hardness of 95A is also a Shore 50D. TPEs can range from 10 Shore 00 up to 72 Shore D, spanning all three hardness scales, however, the most commonly used is the Shore A scale.
