Hardness Testing

Hardness testing is a non-destructive testing conducted to determine the material or product strength, ductility and wear resistance. However, the term hardness may refer to resistance to scratching, bending, abrasion or cutting. A hardness test is conducted by applying a fixed load to an indenter and the depth of penetration is measured by different units and measurements. XPERT technicians are experienced in product and material inspection and assessment in Selangor, Malaysia.

XPERT also offers other NDT such as liquid penetrant testing, eddy current testing, metallography testing and many more for all your business needs.

Hardness Test Approaches:

• Rockwell Hardness Test 

• Brinell Hardness Test

• Vickers Hardness Test 

• Microhardness Test 

• Mohs Hardness Test

Advantages of Hardness Testing

• Test marks on surfaces are minor

• Instant display for instant results

• Record of data for test series

• Portable testing is available

• Quick and easy to perform

XPERT provides professional and high-quality NDT and inspection services.

XPERT Engineering Solution is a reputable company that specialises in the provision of testing, inspection and quality assurance services in Malaysia.


Hardness testing enables you to determine whether a material or material treatment applied is suitable for the product’s intended purpose.

Hardness testing evaluates a product’s strength, ductility, and wear resistance by applying suitable load systems that record an indentation hardness value that indicates the material’s suitability.

XPERT offers several types of hardness tests that use different force application system that caters to a wide range of products, such as:

  • Rockwell Hardness Test – Used for castings, forging, and other relatively large metal products and samples to test for indentation hardness measurements.
  • The Brinell Hardness Test – The most common method performed on almost any metallic material.
  • The Microhardness Test – Used to measure the hardness of small samples or small regions in a sample.
  • Vickers Hardness Test – Provides better accuracy for softer materials that do not need high loads.
  • Mohs Hardness Test – Used to measure the scratch hardness of materials.

Hardness is necessary because resistance to wear by either friction or erosion by steam, oil, and water will generally increase with hardness. Thus, the higher level of hardness your product is, the longer product life it will have.
