ASTM International takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard. Appendix X7 contains equations converting determined hardness scale numbers to Vickers hardness numbers for copper, numbers to inclusive. This is true of yellow brasses and low-carbon steels and irons.
NOTE satm conversion values for other metals based on comparative test on similar materials having similar mechanical properties will be added to this standard as the need arises.
Even in the case of a table established for a single material, such as the table for cartridge brass, some error is involved depending on composition and methods of processing. Aastm in sensitivity within the range of a given hardness scale for example, Rockwell B may be greater than between two different scales or types of instruments.
Indentation hardness is not a single fundamental property but a combination of properties, and the contribution of each to the hardness number varies with the type of test. These recommendations are designed to limit impression diameters to the range from 2. It is necessary to base hardness conversions on comparative tests e10-07 similar materials that also have very similar mechanical properties.
D These Scleroscope hardness conversions are based on Vickers—Scleroscope hardness relationships developed from Vickers hardness data provided by the National Bureau of Standards for 13 steel reference blocks, Scleroscope hardness values obtained on these blocks by the Shore Instrument and Mfg.
Most Rockwell hardness numbers are presented to the nearest 0. Therefore, the user is cautioned to consider these d140-07 and to keep in mind the approximate nature of these conversions when applying them to the results of tests using tungsten carbide balls.

Since all converted hardness values must be considered approximate, however, all converted Rockwell hardness numbers shall be rounded to the nearest whole number in accordance with Practice E C The Brinell hardness numbers in parentheses are outside the range recommended for Brinell hardness testing in 8. F Scale, kgf in. E Scale kgf, in. Principle of Method of Conversion 5. w140-07
As higher forces are used, the increased strain raises the hardness by an amount that depends on the pretest capacity of the metal for strain hardening. C Observed standard deviation of the interlaboratory test data about the indicated conversion line. Even in the case of a table established for a single material, such as the table for cartridge brass, some error is involved depending on composition and methods of processing.
Since all converted hardness values must be considered approximate, however, all converted hardness numbers shall be rounded in accordance with Practice E While annealed metals are being progressively cold worked, the indentation contours pass through a “at” stage in which the lip of the indentation is neither round nor e1400-7 ridged.
Types,L, L,and Methods for Hardness Determinations 3. This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense. On the other hand, heavily astj metals have sharp “ridging” type indentations.
Such values are shown for comparative purposes only, where comparisons may be desired and the recommended machine and scale are not available. Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm.
Appendix X2 contains equations converting determined hardness numbers to Rockwell Asym hardness numbers for non-austenitic steels.
Reporting of Hardness Numbers 7. NOTE 2—The use of hardness scales for hardness values shown in parentheses is not recommended since they are beyond the ranges recommended for accuracy. TABLE 3 Continued Vickers Hardness Number Knoop Hardness Number Vickers Indenter 1,5,10,kgf HV Knoop Indenter and gf HK A In table headings, kgf or gf refers asgm total test force.
These hardness conversion relationships are intended to apply particularly to the following: It is recommended that hardness conversions be applied primarily to values such as specication limits, which are established by agreement or mandate, and that the conversion of test data be avoided whenever possible.
Appendix X1 contains equations converting determined hardness scale numbers to Rockwell C hardness numbers for non-austenitic steels. Each type of hardness test is subject to certain errors, but if precautions are carefully observed, the reliability of hardness awtm made on instruments of the indentation type will be found comparable.
B Appendix X1 contains equations converting determined hardness scale numbers to Rockwell C e104-07 numbers for non-austenitic steels. These recommendations are designed to limit impression diameters to the range from 2.
Due to inherent inaccuracies in the conversion process, the converted number should be rounded to the nearest whole number in accordance with Practice E B Appendix X5 contains an equation converting determined Brinell hardness numbers to Rockwell B hardness numbers for austenitic steel plate in the annealed condition.
The conversion values, whether from the tables or calculated from the equations, are only approximate asstm may be inaccurate for specific application.
