Mohs Hardness Test Kit
Using the Mohs Concrete Surface Hardness Scratch Test Kit you can find the hardness of the concrete relative to Mohs’ hardness scale. Start by using the lowest number pick and continue up the scale until the concrete begs to scratch and that is your numeric number of hardness relative to Mohs’ scale.
8 Points durable metals/alloys of Mohs’ hardness 2 thru 9.
Hardness Plates – 3.5 and 5.5
Grindstone; keeps points sharp
Plastic case, with Instructions and Hardness Tables.
This tool is used in industry to determine the Hardness of a material according to Mohs’ scale. The kit contains 8 different Mohs’ Hardness Points, from Mohs 2 through Mohs 9. These points are used in a ‘scratch test’ on the material. For example, if the number 6 point scratches a particular material, but the number 5 point does not, then your material has a Mohs’ Hardness value of about 5.5. A common use of this tool is in Concrete Hardness Testing to guide the technician in selecting the optimal abrasive to use in the concrete polishing. Other examples of industrial use of this Mohs’ Hardness Test Kit – on touch screens, faucet finishes, and countertop materials. This kit comes packaged in a rugged molded Plastic Case with permanent Instructions, along with a Mohs’ Hardness Table of common natural and man-made materials.
