Knoop hardness test— Part 1: Test method
|Publication Date:||21 December 2020|
|ICS Code (Mechanical testing of metals):||77.040.10|
This Standard specifies the Knoop hardness test method for metallic materials for test forces from 0.009 807 N to 19.613 N.
The Knoop hardness test specified in this Standard is for lengths of indentation diagonals 0.020 mm; it may be used for lengths of indentation diagonals < 0.020 mm upon agreement between the parties involved. ISO 14577-1 allows the determination of hardness from smaller indentations.
A periodic verification method is specified for routine checking of the testing machine in service by the user.
Special considerations for Knoop testing of metallic coatings can be found in ISO 4516.
NOTE 1 Using the method specified in this Standard for determination from indentations < 0.020 mm in diagonal length may cause large uncertainties in the results.
NOTE 2 The International Standard corresponding to this Standard and the symbol of degree of correspondence are as follows.
