ISO 14577-1 specifies the method of instrumented indentation test for the determination of hardness and other materials parameters for the three ranges:
macro (test force between 2 N and 30 kN);
micro (test force less than 2 N; indentation depth greater than 0, 2 m);
nano (indentation depth equal to or less than than 0,2 m).
