Hardness comparison

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

There are a large number of hardness testing methods available (e.g. Vickers, Brinell, Rockwell, Meyer and Leeb). Although it is impossible in many cases to give an exact conversion, it is possible to give an approximate material-specific comparison table e.g. for steels.
