Hardness testing explained

A new Euro Inox paper explains the principles of Vickers, Brinell and Rockwell hardness testing on stainless steel and other metallic materials.
Hardness values are often mentioned in technical documents or requested by stainless steel users. However, the multitude of test methods and hardness scales can make comparison and interpretation difficult.
A concise overview document “Hardness Testing” explains the principles behind the three most commonly used test methods. It points out their working principles and refers to the relevant standards. The 6-page paper can be downloaded from www.euro-inox.org/pdf/map/HardnessTesting_EN.pdf
