It is necessary to base hardness conversions on comparative tests of similar materials that also have very similar mechanical properties. B Appendix X1 contains equations converting determined hardness scale numbers to Rockwell C hardness numbers for non-austenitic steels. For example, currently both the Rockwell and Brinell hardness standards Test MethodE10 and E18, respectively allow or require the use of tungsten carbide ball indenters; however, all of the ball scale Rockwell hardness tests HRB, HR30T, etc.

Originally approved in ASTM International takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. For example, an annealed iron and a cold-rolled aluminum alloy may have hardnesses of 71 and 72 HR 15T, respectively.

ASTM E140-07

Since all converted hardness values must atsm considered approximate, however, all converted Rockwell hardness numbers shall be rounded to the nearest whole number in accordance with Practice E Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. B Appendix X4 contains equations converting determined hardness scale numbers to Vickers hardness numbers for cartridge brass.

Need more than one copy? Therefore separate conversion tables are necessary for different materials. Types,L, L,and Tempers ranged from annealed to extra hard for Typewith a smaller range of tempers for the other types. The Brinell hardness numbers in this conversion table are based on tests using a kgf force. These hardness conversion relationships are intended to apply particularly to the following: The equations given in Annex A1- Annex A9 were developed from the data in Tables 1 to 9, respectively.

B Appendix X6 contains equations converting determined hardness numbers to Rockwell C and Rockwell B hardness numbers for austenitic stainless steel sheet. NOTE 2—The use of hardness scales for hardness values shown in parentheses is not recommended since they are asrm the ranges recommended for accuracy.

Even in the case of a table established for a single material, such as the table e40 cartridge brass, some error is involved depending on composition and methods of processing.


This is because conversions can be affected by several factors, including the material alloy, grain structure, heat treatment, etc. You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server.

E Brinell hardness numbers in parentheses are above the maximum hardness recommended by Test Method E10 and are presented for information only. An annealed ee140 of high capacity for strain hardening will harden much more in the test than will a cold-worked metal. 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.

This standard is not included in any packages.

NOTE 2—Hardness 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.
