Abstract

The ISO 6508-3-2005 standard specified a tight tolerance for the cone flank straightness of Rockwell diamond indenters (0.5 μm for maximum). In the recent issued ISO 6508-3:2015 standard, significant changes on the microform geometrical specification of Rockwell diamond indenters and calibration conditions have been made. Based on the technical specification of ISO 6508-3:2015, NIST researchers are working with diamond manufacturers to develop the Standard Reference Material (SRM) Rockwell hardness diamond indenters to support U.S. Rockwell hardness standardization.
