Hardness Testing – HT

Vision Integrity provides Hardness Testing throughout Western Canada and has several dispatch locations operating 24/7.

Hardness testing is a nondestructive method to determine the hardness of material. It measures the resistance to indentation. Hardness testing uses a fixed load and an indenter to determine the hardness -the smaller the indentation, the harder the material. Hardness testing is used to determine material, test for hardness and test for functionality. Hardness tests are used to verify that material has not degraded over time or is susceptible to cracking. Hardness testing can be used with both ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys, as well as, non-metallic materials. This method of testing is applicable to both new constructive and in-service.
