Impact Tester Charpy and Izod For Plastics

Impact Tester Charpy and Izod For Plastics

Manufactured by Techlab Systems

Our Charpy impact tester & Izod impact methods are used for the determination of the energy absorbed by the sample during fracture. The energy absorbed is a measure of the materials notch toughness. The Charpy & Izod methods are similar, however the arrangement of the specimen differs.

The Charpy & Izod methods are widely used for testing the impact strength of plastics, composites and ceramics in many industries such as aerospace, automotive, railway and medical devices.
