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.

Microindentation Hardness Testing of Materials Using ASTM E384
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Microhardness refers to indentation hardness tests performed by two common methods known as the Knoop and Vickers hardness test. The indenter is pushed into the sample using a fixed load which is usually grams but loads ranging from 10 to grams may be used.
No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
ASTM E384 – 17
ASTM E Microhardness Testing Microhardness tests have been found to be very useful for materials evaluation, quality control of manufacturing processes and research and development efforts. Material testing you can trust since If the test is being conducted to meet a specified bulk hardness value, such as HRC, then most such tests will be conducted with Knoop at a gf load. High surface hardness will give good wear resistance but a softer core is normally required to preserve ductility impact strength.

ASTM E – 11e1 Standard Test Method for Knoop and Vickers Hardness of Materials
This test method covers determination of the microindentation hardness of materials. Advanced Plastic e834 Material Testing, Inc. The majority of Knoop tests of case hardness variations are conducted at forces from to gf.
The sample must be polished to a mirror finish and is usually cross sectioned and mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy prior to testing.
Hardness profiles from the surface to the core of a sample allow measurement of effective case depth or depth of decarburization. Knoop micro-hardness is used to measure the hardness of areas as small as 0. Thus, the Knoop indenter is very useful for evaluating hardness gradients or thin coatings of sectioned samples. Microhardness Testing Specific fields of application of microhardness testing include: Low test forces also extend hardness testing to materials too thin or too small for macroindentation tests.

ASTM E – 17 Standard Test Method for Microindentation Hardness of Materials
The Vickers indenter usually produces a geometrically similar indentation at all test forces. Hardness, although empirical in nature, can be correlated to tensile strength for many metals, and is an indicator of wear resistance and ductility.

Usually the sample is cross sectioned, mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy, and polished to a mirror finish before testing. Your Kindle email address Please provide your Kindle email. The Knoop indenter does not produce a geometrically similar indentation as a function of test force. This data will be updated every 24 hours. Go to Navigation D384 to Content.

In general, the Vickers indenter is better suited for determining bulk average properties as Vickers hardness is not altered by the choice of the test force, from 25 to gf, because the indent geometry is constant as a function of indent depth.

Testers that create indents at very low test forces must be carefully constructed to accurately apply the test forces exactly at the desired location and must have a high-quality optical system to astn measure the diagonal or diagonals of the small indents.
