Metal hardness value table? (Rockwell)

  1. Nov 15, 2005 #1
    I'm looking for the hardness value for Steel 4130, Steel 1018, Al 6061-T6, and Brass 360. (Rockwell-B).

    Is there a website where I can find these value?

    Thank you!

    Go to MatWeb - http://www.matweb.com

    Select one of the Quantitative Searches:

    Set material type to metal and then put in property, e.g. Harndness, Rockwell B, and then search.

    Steels is several pages and I found 1018 and 4130.

    For Brass (listed by UNS) and Al, rather than metal, do the search on Brass or Aluminum - 6000 Series Aluminum Alloy - using Hardness, Rockwell B as the material property category.
