The self-tightening grips are primarily designed for the precision testing of elastomeric and other flexible materials exhibiting a large reduction in cross-section area under load. They provide excellent testing accuracy, positive non-slip gripping action and are quick and simple-to-use. The upper grip is counter balanced so that the specimen can be aligned with the load cell to eliminate non-axial forces.

Interlaminar shear testing is a simple test on, easy to prepare, polymer composite specimens that gives a measure of the strength of the bond between fibers and matrix. Another common test for polymer composites is flexure testing. The Instron® Modular Flexural and Interlaminar Shear Strength (ILSS) bend fixture system, with a range of interchangeable anvils, is suitable for testing to a number of international standards, including ASTM D2344, D790, EN 2562, EN 2563, ISO 14125, and ISO 14130.

ISO 14801 “Dentistry – Implants – Dynamic fatigue test for endosseous dental implants” specifies the procedure for fatigue testing dental implants. Dental implants are designed by various manufacturers and are of different geometries and sizes depending on where they are placed within the mouth. ISO 14801 aims to establish a benchmark for in vitro testing of implants to compare different implant designs and geometries. It does not begin to replicate the complex conditions implants are subjected to when implanted within the oral cavity. Instron®’s latest design of the dental implant system is a turnkey solution to meet all of the requirements for ISO 14801 and is ideally suited for use with the ElectroPuls™ E1000 or E3000 test instruments.
