Vickers Hardness (Micro and Macro)


How Does It Work?
A right pyramid diamond indenter is brought into contact with the material and loaded to a pre-determined load (between 0.01 and 2 kg for microhardness and between 1 and 50 kg for macro-hardness) for a predetermined period of time (usually 10-20 seconds but the time can vary for highly elastic materials). The indenter is then removed and the size of the indentation is determined by measuring the distance between opposing corners of the pyramid. The size of the indentation and the load are then used to calculate the Vickers hardness (HV) of the material at that location.
When should it be used?
