ASTM E Standard Test Method for Microindentation Hardness of Materials. ASTM E covers both the Knoop and Vickers Hardness Tests when conducted using test forces in the 1 to gf. range. While this test method is primarily. Knoop and Vickers Hardness of Materials (Microindentation Hardness) – ASTM E – Test Method. The purpose of this standard is to specify how to measure.

Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards. Vickers tests asstm gf can be utilized for determination of the bulk hardness, but, as for any hardness test, it is recommended that a number of indents are made and the average and standard deviation are calculated, as needed or as required.

The Vickers indenter usually produces a geometrically similar indentation at all test forces.

Subscription pricing is determined by: The indenter is pushed into the sample using a fixed load which is usually grams but w384 ranging from 10 to grams may be used.

While Committee E04 is primarily concerned with metals, the test procedures described are applicable to other materials.

This method covers Knoop micro-hardness using an elongated pyramid indenter and Vickers micro-hardness using a square equilateral pyramid indenter. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time.


Knoop micro-hardness is used to measure the hardness of areas as small as 0. The success of the specimen preparation procedure in removing preparation-induced damage can, and will, influence test results; this problem becomes more critical as the test force decreases.

Hardness profiles from the surface to the core of a sample allow measurement of effective case depth or depth of decarburization.

Microindentation Hardness Testing of Materials Using ASTM E384

Volume 9, Issue S02 Dennis W. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. This data will be updated every 24 hours. Measuring the hardness of surface layers such as plating or bonded layers.

Please contact our sales department for additional information or cost estimation. The Knoop indenter does not produce a geometrically similar indentation as a function of test force.

ASTM E Testing at WMT&R Inc.

Due to its rhombic shape, the indentation depth is shallower for a Knoop indentation compared to a Vickers indentation under identical test conditions.

Hardness, although empirical in nature, can be correlated to tensile strength for many metals, and is an indicator of wear resistance and ductility. Hardness, although empirical in nature, can be correlated to tensile strength for many metals and alloys, and is also an indicator of machinability, wear resistance, toughness and ductility.

ASTM E – Standard Test Method for Microindentation Hardness of Materials

Microhardness tests have been found to be very useful for materials evaluation, quality control of manufacturing processes and research and development efforts. Find out more about sending content to Dropbox. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. In general, the Vickers indenter is better suited for determining bulk average properties e834 Vickers hardness is not altered by the choice of the test force, from 25 to gf, e3844 the indent geometry is constant as a function of indent depth.

The majority of Knoop tests of case hardness variations are conducted at forces from to gf. Low test forces also extend hardness testing to materials too thin or too small for macroindentation tests.
