Your access to Westpak’s experienced engineering team and resources provides you with a quick and economical solution for hardness evaluations.
Westpak evaluates the hardness of parts or materials using state-of-the-art, calibrated industrial test equipment. The Rockwell Hardness test scales HRC, HRB, and HRA are commonly used for evaluating metals.
Shore testing is typically used for evaluating materials that are softer in nature; examples are plastics and rubber. Westpak routinely tests using the Shore A and Shore D scales while offering other scales as well.
Westpak continually upgrades and expands its equipment line-up.
