Material hardness testers measure the hardness of materials. Hardness is defined as a material’s resistance to deformation, specifically resistance to being scratched, cut, bent, broken, or have its shaped changed when a load is applied. The greater the hardness of the material, the greater its resistance to deformation.


There are different scales used by materials hardness testers in terms of the weight of the load used. These are macro, micro and nano scales. Macro measurement is the simplest of the three scales that aims to gather hardness of a bulk material by testing only a small sample. In terms of weight load, the macro scale uses the heaviest load of the three scales and uses a specified deformable weight load, either the shape of a ball or a pyramid, to test for hardness. The micro scale is used for materials that are brittle and prone to cracking such as fiber glass. The nano scale uses very small amounts of load for even more brittle materials.


The TH-174 Portable Hardness Tester Complete Kit - TH-174C is a good example of a material hardness tester that uses the macro scale since it specialize in measuring the hardness of large and bulky materials. The Barcol-934 is a good example of a material hardness tester in the micro scale, given that fiber glass and similar materials are brittle and easily shatter. Lastly, the Digital Shore A Durometer - ICHF-SHRA is a good example of a nano scale tester given that it is only used in rubber and soft plastics.
