Revision of E10-18 Standard Test Method for Brinell Hardness of Metallic Materials


Test results that have been converted from other hardness tests or scales:
Although ASTM E140 states requirements for reporting converted numbers, there are no comparable statements in the hardness test standards. The E140 requirement might be overlooked or the user might use other hardness conversions. This revision is to add additional reporting requirements to ASTM E10-18 for Brinell hardness test results that are converted from a different hardness test or scale. A similar revision has been previously approved in E18-22.
