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. ASTM E is a method of measuring micro-hardness by pushing a pyramid shaped s384 indenter into a metal and then measuring the size of the indent using a microscope.

High surface hardness will give good wear e348 but a softer core is normally required to preserve ductility impact strength. As the voice of the U.
Subscription pricing is determined by: Test forces in the upper range of the force range defined in 1. 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. The indenter is pushed into the sample using a fixed astmm which is usually grams but loads ranging from 10 to grams may be used. Go to Navigation Go to Content.
ASTM E384 Microhardness Testing
The Knoop indenter does not produce a geometrically similar indentation as a function of test force. 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.

Low test forces also extend hardness testing to materials too thin or too small for macroindentation tests. To determine these differences requires a very small physical indentation.
ASTM E – 17 Standard Test Method for Microindentation Hardness of Materials
This standard is not included in any packages. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts.
Thus, the Knoop indenter is very useful for evaluating hardness gradients or thin coatings of sectioned samples. 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 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.

Usually the sample is cross sectioned, mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy, and polished to a mirror finish before testing.
No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Small Samples unable to be tested by conventional methods. Microhardness tests have been found to be very useful for materials evaluation, quality control of manufacturing processes and research and development efforts.
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. These variations may be intentional, such as produced by localized surface hardening, for example, from shot blasting, cold drawing, flame hardening, induction hardening, etc.
