Influences of relative density, grain size, Young's modulus, flexural strength and fracture toughness on microhardness characteristics of hot-pressed silicon nitride, sintered silicon nitride, reaction-sintered sialon and liquid-phase sintered sialon have been discussed. Three new semi-empirical equations have been proposed to correlate microhardness to relative density. Indentation size effects on microhardness measurement have also been discussed.
