Round Correction Factor


Hardness Minimum Thickness

"Round correction" is another overlooked factor in hardness testing. Inexperienced untrained


operators are using a sophisticated piece of equipment that is calibrated and they expect it to
give good results no matter what the condistions. But users actually need to know what they
are doing. Round correction is just like testing close to the edge of a sample -- the material
flows more easily to the edge and, in effect, creates a lower hardness value. There is no
correction factor for testing close to an edge but there is for rounds; Use the values below to
add to your test results depending on the diameter and result. And just like with testing close
to an edge, check your vee anvil alignment with the indenter. If it is off by a fraction it could
affect your results by a large amount or break a diamond indenter.
