Indentation hardness :

It is the resistance offered by the metals to the indentation, which is mainly a measure of plasticity and density. This can be divided into three major varieties i.e. Rockwell, Brinnel, and Vickers hardness scales, which are commonly used by industries.

Rebound hardness :

It is the resistance offered by the metal to strike and rebound, which is mainly a measure of elastic properties

Scratch hardness :

It is the resistance offered by the metal to scratching, which is principally a measure of strength and plastic properties.

Cutting hardness :

It is the resistance of metals to various cutting operations

Abrasive hardness :

It is resistance of metals to wear subjected to sliding or rotating motion

Moh's Hardness Test :

It is the ability of the material to exhibit large plastic deformation prior to fracture under tensile loading conditions. It is also defined as the ability of a material to be drawn into five wire. Ductility is expressed by percent elongation.

The standard Moh's scale of hardness is as below :

  • Talc
  • Orthoclase
  • Gypsum
  • Calcite
  • Fluorite
  • Apaite
  • Quartz
  • Topaz
  • Corrundum
  • Diamond
