Microhardness tests have been found to be very useful for materials evaluation, quality control of manufacturing processes and research and development efforts. Measuring hardness close to the edges of work pieces for anomalies.
Knoop micro-hardness is used to measure the hardness of areas as small as 0. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. Click here to request a quote Chicago Lab: Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This test method covers determination of the microindentation hardness of materials.
Usually the sample is cross sectioned, mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy, and polished to a mirror finish before testing. The sample must be polished to a asstm finish and is usually cross sectioned and mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy prior to testing. Need more than one copy? Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Due to its rhombic shape, the indentation depth is shallower for a Knoop indentation compared to a Vickers indentation under identical test conditions.
Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution.
If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. Material testing you can trust since Non-uniform materials often give inconsistent results. The majority of Knoop tests of case hardness variations are conducted at forces from to gf. 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.
APM Testing provides A2LA accredited services for Knoop micro-hardness testing at a fair price, with prompt delivery, and a detailed test report. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards. Low test forces also extend hardness testing to materials too thin or too small for macroindentation tests.
These variations may be intentional, such as produced by localized surface hardening, for example, from shot blasting, cold drawing, flame hardening, induction hardening, etc. Microhardness refers to indentation hardness tests performed by two common methods known as the Knoop and Vickers hardness test. 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.
The Vickers indenter usually produces a geometrically similar indentation at all test forces. 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.
Microindentation tests permit hardness testing of specific phases or constituents and regions or gradients too small for evaluation by macroindentation tests.

This method covers Knoop micro-hardness using an elongated pyramid indenter and Vickers micro-hardness using a square equilateral pyramid indenter. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

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.
High surface hardness will give good wear resistance but a softer core is normally required to preserve ductility impact strength. Samples less than 0. Micro constituents of assemblies.

Microhardness Testing – ASTM E Microindentation Hardness | SGS MSi Testing
asttm Measuring the hardness of surface layers such as plating or bonded layers. This standard is not included in any packages. ASTM E Microhardness Testing Microhardness tests have been found to be very useful for materials evaluation, quality control of manufacturing processes and aztm and development efforts.
As the voice of the U. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. Add to Alert PDF. 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.
ASTM E384 Microhardness Testing
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. Foil and thin wire. Test loads are as low as 1 gram and as high as 1, grams, but are typically in the range of to grams. Carburizing or nitriding operations to measure cross sections.
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. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. Thus, the Knoop indenter is very useful for evaluating hardness gradients or thin coatings of sectioned samples. Test forces in the upper range of the force range defined in 1. 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.
The Knoop indenter does not produce a geometrically similar indentation as a function of test force. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts.
Hardness profiles from the surface to the core of a sample allow measurement of effective case depth or depth of decarburization.
