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 astj a high-quality optical system to precisely measure the diagonal or aetm of the small indents. Hardness, although empirical in nature, can be correlated to tensile strength for many metals, and is an indicator of wear resistance and ductility.

Subscription pricing is determined by: Test forces in the astn range of the force range defined in 1.

Micro constituents ashm assemblies. Microhardness refers to indentation hardness tests performed by two common methods known as the Knoop and Vickers hardness test.

ASTM E is a method of measuring micro-hardness by pushing a pyramid shaped diamond indenter into a metal and then measuring the size of asfm indent using a microscope.

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 E384 Microhardness Testing

Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. The Vickers indenter usually produces a geometrically similar indentation at all test forces. Low test forces also extend hardness testing to materials too thin or too small for macroindentation tests. APM Testing provides A2LA accredited services for Knoop micro-hardness testing at a fair price, with prompt delivery, and a detailed test report.

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.

ASTM E – 11e1 Standard Test Method for Knoop and Vickers Hardness of Materials

Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. Thus, the Knoop indenter is very useful for evaluating hardness gradients or thin coatings of sectioned samples.

Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. The Knoop indenter does not produce a geometrically similar indentation as a function of test force. If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email.


Knoop micro-hardness is used to measure the hardness of areas as small as 0. 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.

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

Measuring hardness close to e34 edges of work pieces for anomalies. Because of the large difference between the long and short Knoop diagonals, the Knoop indenter is often better suited for determining variations of hardness over very small distances compared to the Vickers indenter.

This test method covers determination of the microindentation hardness of materials. Add to Alert PDF.

Usually the sample is cross sectioned, mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy, and polished to a mirror finish before testing. Measuring the hardness of surface layers such as plating or bonded layers.
