  • Izod/Charpy Impact Tests on IS / BS / ISO Machine
  • Impact Test on ASTM Machine

from Room Temperature to -196°C

Under certain situations, a ductile material fails in a brittle manner in the service and such a failure is characterized by low absorption of energy. The factors which contribute to the brittle type of failure are :

  • A triaxial state of stress,
  • A low temperature and
  • A high strain rate or rapid rate of loading.

Charpy impact test is widely used in the United States and Izod impact test in Great Britain for this purpose. Procedures for the Charpy and load tests as applied to metals have been standardized (ASTM E 23).
