Materials experts at Argen perform hardness testing on modern, state-of-the-art instrumentation for fast and reliable results you can count on to make decisions. Both Macro and Micro hardness testing is available, covering Rockwell, Vickers, Knoop, and Brinell scales. In many cases, specimen preparation is necessary prior to hardness measurement. Case hardness depth, weld quality, Heat Affected Zone, profiles, and other characteristics can be related to microstructure via combination with microscopy or other techniques.
Example Test Standards:
ASTM E384, ASTM E10, E18, E110, E140, B578, D1474
