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.
Testers that create indents at very low test forces must be carefully 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. Our laboratory also provides laboratory services for plastic testingmetal testingrubber testingoil testingpaint testingplating testingadhesive testingcircuit board testingand other testing.
As the voice of the U. Small Samples unable to be tested by conventional methods. Hardness, although empirical in nature, can be correlated to tensile strength for many metals, and is an indicator of wear resistance and ductility. These variations may be intentional, such as produced by localized surface hardening, for example, from shot blasting, cold drawing, flame hardening, induction hardening, etc.
Low test forces also extend hardness testing to materials too thin or too small for macroindentation tests.
The Knoop indenter does not produce a geometrically similar indentation as a function of test force. 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.

To determine these differences requires a very small physical indentation. Measuring hardness close to the edges of work pieces for anomalies. Results are reported in a table with up to ten indents per sample. 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.

Micro constituents of assemblies. Samples less than 0. Foil and thin wire. Due to its rhombic shape, the indentation depth is shallower for a Knoop indentation compared to a Vickers indentation under identical test conditions.

The majority of Knoop tests of case hardness variations are conducted at forces from to gf. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Hardness profiles from the surface to the core of a sample allow measurement of effective case depth or depth of decarburization.
Thus, the Knoop indenter is very useful for evaluating hardness gradients or thin coatings of sectioned samples.
