If the test is being conducted to meet a specified bulk hardness value, such as HRC, then most such tests asttm be conducted with Knoop at a gf load. Microhardness tests have been found to be very useful for materials evaluation, quality control of manufacturing processes and research and development efforts.
Micro constituents of assemblies. Test forces in the upper range of the force range defined in 1. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts.
This method covers Knoop micro-hardness using an elongated pyramid indenter and Vickers micro-hardness using a square equilateral pyramid indenter. 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 – Standard Test Method for Microindentation Hardness of Materials
As the voice of the U. This standard is not included in any packages.
Hardness profiles from the surface to the core of a sample allow measurement of effective case depth or depth of decarburization.
Non-uniform materials ast give inconsistent results.
Microindentation tests permit hardness testing of specific phases or constituents and regions or gradients too small for evaluation by macroindentation tests. Due to its rhombic shape, the indentation depth is shallower for a Knoop indentation compared to a Vickers indentation under identical test conditions. Measuring hardness close to the edges of work pieces for anomalies. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored.
Already Subscribed to this document. The sample must be polished to a mirror finish and is usually cross sectioned and mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy prior to testing. Vickers tests at 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.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The Knoop indenter does not produce a geometrically similar indentation as a function of test force. Because of the large difference between the long and short Knoop xstm, the Knoop indenter is often better suited for determining variations of hardness over very small distances compared to the Vickers indenter. 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.
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.
ASTM E384 Microhardness Testing
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. Testers that w384 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 precisely measure the diagonal or diagonals of the small indents.
These variations may be intentional, such as produced by localized surface hardening, for example, from shot blasting, cold drawing, flame hardening, induction hardening, etc. Samples less than 0. Add to Alert PDF. Results are reported in a table with up to ten indents per sample.
