Instron 9440 and 9450 follow the ASTM D2444 standards for falling weight impact resistance of thermoplastic pipes and fittings.
A CEAST 9050 can find a plastic's resistance to damage from the pendulum tester, a hammer arm, and a three point bend configuration.
To prevent harm from an impact event, a drop-weight impact tests measures the resistance to damage from fiber reinforced polymer matrix composite plates.
To determine the temperature when the fracture mode of steel changes from ductile to brittle, or the NDT temperature, follow the ASTM E208 drop weight test
Tests can be performed to determine the impact resistance of composite materials on outer and inner layers of boats used in the nautical industry.
Impact testers are used by drilling companies to test drill bits made by diamonds and other hard materials to drill quickly and effectively.
Instron's Dynatup Impulse Data Acquisition works with impact machines simplify the determination of the failure and response of the product.
For impact resistance testing of fiber cement products used in the external installation process of buildings, Instron suggests a CEAST 9440 or 9450 system.
The CEAST 9350 is able to test how football helmets reacts to shocks from impacts by simulating force and other impacts that can happen on the field.
To measure the resistance against fractures of structural adhesives important to safety, use a wedge peel test, as determined by ISO 11343.
ISO 179-1 gives methods for uninstrumented determination of charpy impact properties and the energy needed to break a plastic specimen.
Following ISO 6603-2, engineers test strength, ductility, toughness, and energy absorption with a 9450 impact Drop Tower to prevent dynamic failures of plastics.
A CEAST 9450 with a Drop Weight Impact Tester fixture can produce an edgewise impact on LCD glass to measure mechanical properties in realistic conditions.
Instead of simply adding thickness to roof tiles to improve durability, perform impact tests on tiles to determine possible damage and choose the best material.
Among popular shooting sports, shotgun events use shells containing plastic wadding that needs to be impact testing to ensure proper reactions.
