• Scratch Hardness - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

    www.sciencedirect.com/topics/materials-science/scratch-hardness Scratch hardness, as the name implies, is the resistance to a sharp object as it moves against the material’s surface. Soft materials will readily deform, and a gouge or scratch will be left behind. The size and depth of the scratch, the appearance of the scratch (smooth or rough), are all elements of scratch resistance. ...
  • 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.
  • Corrosionpedia - What is Scratch Hardness? - Definition ...

    www.corrosionpedia.com/definition/5964/scratch-hardness Scratch hardness is the ability of a material to resist plastic deformation, usually by scratches and abrasion. One type of hardness test is the scratch hardness test, which measures the hardness of a material with the aid of a sharp object.

  • Hardness - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardness_tester Scratch hardness is the measure of how resistant a sample is to fracture or permanent plastic deformation due to friction from a sharp object. The principle is that an object made of a harder material will scratch an object made of a softer material.
  • Standard Test Method for Scratch Hardness of Materials ...

    www.astm.org/Standards/G171.htm Scratch hardness numbers, unlike quasi-static hardness numbers, involve a different combination of properties of the surface because the indenter, in this case a diamond stylus, moves tangentially along the surface. Therefore, the stress state under the scratching stylus differs from that produced under a quasi-static indenter.
