Hardness, although empirical in nature, can be correlated to tensile strength for many metals, and is an indicator of wear resistance and ductility.

Recommendations for microindentation testing can be found in Test Method E Vickers and Knoop Hardness Standardizing Asttm.

However, in practice, the most commonly used force units are kilogram-force kgf and gram-force gf. This rise in hardness number with lower test forces is often more significant when testing higher hardness materials, and is increasingly more significant when using test forces below 50 gf see Test Method E Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the asgm.


When Newton units of force are used, the force must be divided by the conversion factor 9. Today, the hardness numbers are internationally defined in terms of SI units, that is, 9e2 test force in Newtons N.

The significant differences between the two tests are the geometries of the respective indenters, s92 method of calculation of the hardness numbers, and that Vickers hardness may be used at higher force levels than Knoop hardness.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of ast. This standard provides the requirements for Vickers and Knoop hardness machines and the procedures for performing Vickers and Knoop hardness tests.

However, because of the historical precedent and continued common usage, force values in gf and kgf units are provided for information and much of the discussion in this standard as well as the method of reporting the test results refers to these units. Hence, the Knoop hardness test is very useful for evaluating hardness gradients since Knoop indentations can be made closer together than Qstm indentations by orienting the Knoop indentations with the short diagonals in the direction of the hardness gradient.


Microindentation hardness tests also allow specific phases or constituents and regions or asstm too small for macroindentation hardness testing to be evaluated.

ASTM E92 – 82() Standard Test Method for Vickers Hardness of Metallic Materials

While Committee E28 is primarily concerned with metallic materials, the test procedures described are applicable to other materials. Standardization of Vickers and Knoop F92.

For isotropic materials, the ashm diagonals of a Vickers indentation are equal in length. Other materials ast, require special considerations, for example see C and C for ceramic testing. 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. The Vickers and Knoop hardness numbers were originally defined in terms of the test force in kilogram-force kgf and the surface area or projected area in millimetres squared mm 2.
