ASTM WK28206

    Revision of E110 - 10 Standard Test Method for Indentation Hardness of Metallic Materials by Portable Hardness Testers

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: E110 - 10

    Developed by Subcommittee: E28.06 | Committee E28 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The revision of ASTM E 110 is being proposed to improve the testing and verification requirements of portable testers and to clearly state that tests made by portables do not meet the requirements of ASTM E 10 and E 18. The standard is also being revised to require that reported hardness values are differentiated from E 10 and E 18 measurements by adding the suffix /P to the hardness designation.
