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 the indent using a microscope. No e34 units of measurement are included in this standard. The Knoop indenter does not produce a geometrically similar indentation as a function of test force.

If the test is being conducted asym meet a specified bulk hardness value, such as HRC, then most such tests will be conducted with Knoop at a gf load. You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server.

Thus, the Knoop indenter is very useful for evaluating hardness gradients or thin coatings of sectioned samples. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping.


Microhardness refers to indentation hardness tests performed by two common methods known as the Knoop and Vickers hardness test. This standard is not included in any packages.

While Committee E04 is primarily concerned with metals, the test procedures described are applicable to other materials. To determine these differences requires a very small physical indentation.

The sample must be polished to a mirror finish and is usually cross sectioned and mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy prior to testing. Small Samples unable to be tested by conventional methods. We have no amendments or corrections for this standard.

ASTM E – Standard Test Method for Microindentation Hardness of Materials

Need more than one copy? 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. Carburizing or nitriding operations to measure cross sections. Add to Alert PDF. This method covers Knoop micro-hardness using an elongated pyramid indenter ee384 Vickers micro-hardness using a square equilateral pyramid indenter. Results are reported in a table with up to ten indents per sample.

Microindentation tests permit hardness testing of specific phases or constituents asm regions or gradients too small for evaluation by macroindentation tests. Micro constituents of assemblies. 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. Hardness, although empirical in nature, can be correlated to tensile strength for many metals asstm alloys, and is also an indicator of machinability, wear resistance, toughness and ductility.
