Which Material Do You Need?

Steel
Steel gage blocks have proven their reliability for more than a
hundred years. This material remains the most commonly accepted
for length standards. Steel gage blocks provide high resistance
to wear associated with adherence to other gage blocks. However,
steel must be protected against corrosion. Provided gage blocks
are made from steel, properly handled and cared for, they will
remain reliable for many years. Brown & Sharpe steel gage
blocks have the following features:
• Highly alloyed steel.
• Hardness guaranteed to 800 HV.
• Artificially aged for optimum form and dimensional
stability.
• Coefficient of thermal expansion:
(11.5 ± 1.0) x 10-6 K-1.

Tungsten Carbide
Gage blocks made with tungsten carbide are 10 times more durable
than steel gages. They are designed for frequent use and possess
superior wringing capabilities. Brown & Sharpe tungsten
carbide gage blocks provide:
• Hardness guaranteed to 1400 HV.
• Coefficient of thermal expansion:
(4.23 ± 0.1) x 10-6 K-1.

Ceramic
Ceramic gage blocks are extremely resistant to wear and
scratches. As a result, any minor damage to the wringability of
their measuring face is unlikely. Corrosion resistant, these gage
blocks are resistant to sweaty hands, and normal wear and tear.
Manufactured from stabilized Zirconia, Brown & Sharpe ceramic
gage blocks have the following key features:
• Impossible to magnetize.
• Hardness guaranteed to 1400 HV.
• Coefficient of thermal expansion:
(9.7 ± 0.8) x 10-6 K-1
