Traxx Mohs Scratch Hardness Tester

The Deluxe Hardness Pick Set from TRAXX is unique in that, unlike other mineral hardness testing tools that use minerals or crystal points, the TRAXX picks are made of metals and alloys of hardness values equal to 2 through 9 on the Mohs’ hardness scale.  And because the picks are made of metal, they are easily ground to sharp points which will not break off and which can be easily sharpened

Why measure the hardness of a concrete? Because hardness is an important and quantifiable physical characteristic of concrete and in your effort to identify an value, the hardness, if known, combined with other properties, can make the tool selection much easier as well as the initial quoting of the job at hand.

How do you use the hardness picks? Simply scratch the concrete surface with the picks of various indicated hardness. As an example, if a No. 5 pick scratches the concrete but a No. 4 pick does not, then your concrete hardness is 4.5. 

You can then select the bond and mesh type of your diamond segment based on a known factor, coupled with your experience.
