ASTM E10, Standard Test Method for Brinell Hardness of Metallic Materials, has been updated. The new 2017 Edition is available from Document Center Inc. now. You can purchase the document in a number of formats: paper, pdf download, redline, and as part of our Standards Online company access subscription. This new update replaces the 2015a Edition, which is now obsolete.
I last blogged about the ASTM E10 when the 2015a Edition was released. In that post, I review the Brinell Hardness test itself. Check it out if you have questions about the content of the standard.
E10 is extensively used in industry. So the new changes may impact your testing methods that reference this standard. The ASTM Committee E28, which oversees this document, has highlighted the following areas where changes occur:
- A Note A1.4 has been added
- Sections A126.96.36.199, A188.8.131.52, and A184.108.40.206 have been revised
- Table 1 has been updated
- Section 3.2.2 has been added and Sections 3.2.3 and 3.2.5 have been revised
- Tables A1.2 and A2.6 have been changed
- Sections A4.5.3, A4.5.4, A4.5.1, A4.5.5, and A220.127.116.11 have been revised
The redline edition will provide you with both a clean copy and a copy of the previous edition with the changes clearly marked. Look for the bold black lines in the margins of the redline copy.
