Charpy & Izod Impact tests

There are two types of test use for testing the Impact resistance of any material one is Izod Impact resistance test and other is Charpy Impact resistance test. Both of them use the same principle to test the Impact resistance of any material but still there are may difference in them and our today's article will show these difference between Izod and Charpy Impact testing

Capillary rheometry

Capillary rheometers principle is based on measurement of the melt flow, by a pressure applied through the precisely dimensioned capillary.

TABER® Abrasion tester

The TABER Abraser (Abrader) is used to perform accelerated wear testing on plastics, coatings, laminates, leather and other materials.

TABER® Shear / Scratch tester

Method to determine the resistance to shearing, scratching, gouging, marring, scraping and engraving of a variety of flat, rigid specimens.

Accelerated weathering of plastics

Ultraviolet radiation, temperature, and moisture contribute to material degradation of products exposed to the elements. Accelerated weathering tests simulate these conditions using special environmental chambers and instruments in order to speed up the weathering process and to measure its effects on parts, components, products, and materials.
