• Scratch hardness - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scratch_hardness Scratch hardness tests are used to determine the hardness of a material to scratches and abrasion. The earliest test was developed by mineralogist Friedrich Mohs in 1820 (see Mohs scale).It is based on relative scratch hardness, with talc assigned a value of 1 and diamond assigned a value of 10.

    www.dictionary.com/browse/scratch-hardness Scratch hardness definition, resistance of a material, as a stone or metal, to scratching by one of several other materials, the known hardnesses of which are assembled into a standard scale, as the Mohs' scale of minerals. See more.
  • Scratch Hardness - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

    www.sciencedirect.com/topics/materials-science/scratch-hardness Scratch hardness is, in fact, one of the oldest forms of hardness measurement. It depends on the ability of one material (in this case a mineral) to scratch another material or mineral. Moh in 1922 introduced an arbitrary, not a linear, semi-quantitative scale for scratch hardness, known popularly as the Mohs scale of hardness.
  • Hardness and Scratch

    www.elcometerusa.com/Laboratory/Hardness-and-Scratch Hardness can be defined as a material's resistance to permanent deformation. In the coatings industry, hardness measurement can be used to determine the resistance of the coating to scratching from general wear and tear and also if a coating is fully cured.
