3 Classification
3.1 Pencils are divided into graphite pencils and colored pencils according to their lead materials, and are divided into ordinary products and advanced products.
3.2 Graphite pencils are divided into 17 types, 6B, 5B, 4B, 3B, 2B, B, HB, F, H, 2H, 3H, 4H, 5H, 6H, 7H, 8H, 9H, according to their hardness.
3.3 Colored pencils are classified by color combination.
a) lead tip force tester;
b) oven;
c) desiccator;
d) lead tip gauge board.
5.1.3 Methods and steps
5.1.3.1 The colored pencil shall be placed in an oven at 35??C ~ 40??C for 24 hours; then, place it in a desiccator to cool for more than 12 hours.
5.1.3.2 Roll the tip of the to-be-tested pencil in a pencil sharpener at 20?? ?? 1??; then, insert the lead tip into the lead tip gauge board; use metallographic sandpaper to smooth the exposed part. For colored pencils and 3B ~ 6B
graphite pencils, use a 1.2 mm-bore lead tip gauge board; for 2B ~ 9H graphite pencils, use a 0.8 mm-bore lead tip gauge board.
5.1.3.3 Install the pencil that is gauged on a pencil holder that is tilted at 45??; align the lead tip with the midpoint of the force carrier and tighten.
5.1.3.4 Start the motor. When the force carrier rises to the lead tip and has damages (including crushing, cracking, breaking, etc.), immediately turn off the motor; the index value of the pointer is the lead tip force value.
5.2 Hardness test
5.2.1 Test conditions
a) ambient temperature: 20??C ?? 2??C;
b) relative humidity: 50% ~ 65%.
5.2.2 Instruments and materials
a) micro hardness tester;
b) lead tip gauge board.
5.2.3 Methods and steps
5.2.3.1 Take both the lead tips with the highest and lowest force on the lead tip as samples. Use metallographic sandpaper to smooth the end surface of the sample; observe it under the microscope of a micro hardness tester. The fineness of the end surface of the sample shall prevail.
5.2.3.2 Select the load according to Table 5 and select a hold time of 10 s. 7.028 -- correction factor;
l -- the length of the longer diagonal line of the indentation, in micrometers (??m). Express the calculation result to the single digit.
5.3 Abrasion test
5.3.1 Test conditions
a) ambient temperature: 20??C ?? 2??C;

b) 80 g/m2 writing paper (GB/T 12654);
c) oven;
d) desiccator;
e) lead tip gauge board.
5.3.3 Methods and steps
5.3.3.1 Put the writing paper in an oven at 30??C ?? 3??C for 2 h; then, cool it in a drying box for 2 h and take it out; then, place it in a plastic bag or a desiccant- free desiccator; use it within one week. When in use, face the front side of the paper up; attach the ring to the revolving drum of the abrasion meter.
5.3.3.2 Take the pencil whose lead tip force is the lowest as the test pencil. 5.3.3.3 Roll the tip of the pencil in a pencil sharpener at 20?? ?? 1??; then, insert the lead tip into the lead tip gauge board; use metallographic sandpaper to smooth the exposed part. For colored pencils and B ~ 6B graphite pencils, use a 0.8 mm-bore lead tip gauge board. For HB ~ 9H graphite pencils, use a 0.7 mm-bore lead tip gauge board.
5.3.3.4 Connect the clutch of the abrasion meter; then, insert the test pencil into the pencil holder; adjust the weight on the pencil holder lever to balance it; add a 300 g weight to the pencil holder; place the counter and dial indicator to zero separately.
5.3.3.5 Turn on the power; rotate the abrasion meter revolving drum; turn off the power when it revolves 100 circles. At this time, the value on the dial indicator is the abrasion value of the lead.
c) 210 g/m2 slab printed coating base paper;
d) lead tip gauge board.
5.5.3 Methods and steps
5.5.3.1 Take the pencil whose lead tip force is the highest as the test pencil. 5.5.3.2 Roll the tip of the pencil in a pencil sharpener at 20?? ?? 1??; then, insert the lead tip into the lead tip gauge board; use metallographic sandpaper to smooth the exposed part. For 6B ~ B graphite pencils, use a 0.7 mm-bore lead tip gauge board. For HB ~ 9H graphite pencils, use a 0.6 mm-bore lead tip gauge board.
5.5.3.3 Install the rubber printed coating base paper on the smooth metal ring plate of the cross scribing machine; then, insert the test pencil into the pencil holder and tighten it; adjust the weight on the pencil holder level to balance it; add a 500 g weight; shake the handle to make the lead come into contact with the coating base paper and scribe. Draw 15 lines at a time; each line is 60 mm in length. After each 15 lines, rotate 45?? in order; then, continue the scribe; make 4 times in total. Take a square with a length of 25 mm ?? 1 mm at the center of the scribing line as the sample paper.
5.5.3.4 Adjust the photoelectric colorimeter; select an interference filter whose center wavelength is 450 nm; place the sample paper in a dark box; measure 3 times; record the value that is shown on each ?€?-logT?€? scale; obtain the average as the final result.
5.6 Pencil lead diameter, pencil diameter and pencil length test
5.6.1 Test tools
a) micrometer whose resolution is not less than 0.01 mm;
b) Vernier caliper whose resolution is not less than 0.02 mm;
c) steel ruler whose resolution is not less than 0.5 mm;
5.6.2 Test method
Use a steel ruler or a Vernier caliper to measure the pencil length. Use a micrometer to measure the lead diameter; use a Vernier caliper to measure the pencil diameter. Measure 3 points on each lead or pencil separately, and take the average value as the final result.

Only when the product reaches the acceptance quality limits that are specified by category B and category C at the same time, the inspection batch can be judged as qualified.
6.3.6 Dispose according to the following principles after batch inspection: a) Products that pass the factory inspection shall be attached with a product certificate (chapter) before leaving the factory;
b) The unqualified batch of factory inspection shall be returned to the production department for 100% reorganization and rework. After
reorganization and rework, the inspection may be resubmitted again. The corresponding tightened inspection sampling scheme shall be adopted for the resubmitted batch. If the resubmitted batch still fails, the batch of products is unqualified.
