Certification of Charpy V-notch reference test pieces of 150 J nominal absorbed energy, ERM-FA415p and ERM-FA415r

Funded under: FP7-JRC


This certification report describes the processing and characterisation of ERM-FA415p and ERM-FA415r, two batches of Charpy V-notch certified reference test pieces. Sets of five of these test pieces are used for the verification of pendulum impact test machines according to EN 10045-2 (Charpy impact test on metallic materials, Part 2. Method for the verification of impact testing machines) or according to ISO 148-2 (Metallic materials - Charpy pendulum impact test - art 2: Verification of testing machines).
The certified property is defined by the Charpy impact test procedure as described in EN 10045-1 and ISO 148-1. The certified values are traceable to the International System of Units (SI) through the corresponding Master Batch ERM-FA415b of the same nominal absorbed energy (150 J).
