The scleroscope is a rebound hardness tester with a scale divided into 140 equal parts. For carbon and graphite materials, there is no established correlation between the Scleroscope hardness scale and other hardness scales. The test is useful in the evaluation and the manufacturing control of carbon and graphite materials.View Less
1.1 This test method covers the apparatus and procedure for determining the hardness of carbon and graphite materials using the Model C-2 scleroscope² with the hammer calibrated for use on carbon and graphite materials with particles smaller than 0.8 mm (0.032 in.).³
1.2 The values given in acceptable metric units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
