This specification covers both the Knoop and Vickers Hardness Tests when conducted using test forces in the 1 to gf. With the Vickers Hardness Test a diamond with an apical angle of ° is used. The Microindentation Hardness Test (commonly referred to as a micro hardness. Microhardness refers to indentation hardness tests and ASTM E is the standard test method for Knoop and Vickers hardness testing of materials. Request a.

NOTE 2—While Committee E04 is primarily concerned with metals, the test procedures described are applicable to other materials. Ast Knoop hardness number Astm e384 is based upon the force divided by the projected area of the indentation. 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 astm e384 indent using a microscope.
This standard is issued under the fixed designation E; the number immediately following the designation indicates the astm e384 of original adoption or, in astm e384 case of revision, the year of last revision.

Typical applications include astm e384 surface hardness treatments, measuring coating hardness, measuring the hardness of thin films and foils, and characterizing the hardness profiles of welded materials.
Advanced Plastic and Material Testing, Inc. Microhardness Testing Specific fields of application of microhardness testing include: Foil and thin wire.
Astm e384 previous edition approved in as E — 10e2. The indenter is pushed into the sample using a fixed load which is usually grams but loads ranging astm e384 10 to grams may be astm e384. Lucideon logo Created with Sketch.
Samples less than 0. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. 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. Measuring hardness close to the edges of work pieces for anomalies.

ASTM E384 Microhardness Testing
Usually the sample is cross sectioned, mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy, and polished to a mirror finish before testing. Microhardness refers to indentation hardness tests performed by two common methods known as the Knoop and Vickers hardness test. These variations may be intentional, such as produced by localized astm e384 hardening, for example, from shot blasting, cold drawing, flame hardening, induction hardening, etc. Test loads are astm e384 low as 1 gram and as high as 1, grams, but are typically astm e384 the range astm e384 to grams.
High surface hardness will give good wear resistance but a softer core is normally required to preserve ductility impact strength. With this revision the test method was expanded to include the requirements previously defined in E Microindentation tests permit hardness testing of specific phases or constituents and regions or gradients too small for evaluation by macroindentation tests.
The sample must be polished to a mirror finish and is usually cross sectioned and mounted ASTM E3 in epoxy prior to testing. Results are reported in a table with up to ten indents per sample. Please contact our sales astm e384 for additional information or cost estimation. Testers that create indents at very low test forces must be astm e384 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.
Knoop micro-hardness is used to measure the hardness of areas as small as 0. This method covers Knoop micro-hardness using an elongated pyramid indenter and Vickers micro-hardness using astm e384 square equilateral pyramid indenter.
Originally approved in Test forces in the upper range of the force range defined in 1. Because of the astm e384 difference between the long and astm e384 Knoop diagonals, the Knoop indenter is often better suited for determining variations of hardness over very small distances compared to the Vickers indenter.
A Astm e384 or Vickers indenter, made from a diamond of a specific geometry, is pressed into the test specimen surface by an accurately controlled applied force using test machines specifically designed for such work.

The last approved version of this historical standard is referenced astm e384 www. The last approved version of this historical standard is referenced. 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. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The purpose of this standard is to specify how to measure astm e384 Knoop s384 Vickers astm e384 of materials.
