Sets should be returned to Smithers Rapra for re-testing. Dependant on use, this varies between 6 months and two years. The blocks should be replaced when they appear worn or the hardness of the block is not acceptable at the time of testing.

- Round blocks (45mm diameter) and blocks of other dimensions are available on request.
- Sets of smaller blocks for use with micro hardness testers are also available
