Instrumented Puncture Test
The instrumented puncture test according to DIN EN ISO 6603-2 is used for the determination of the multiaxial impact behaviour of solid polymers. For films we offer tests conforming to DIN ISO 7765-2.
For the experimental setup an instrumented drop tester is used.
In contrast to the non-instrumented impact test according to DIN EN ISO 6603-1, the instrumented puncture test allows to interpret the force and deformation behaviour and needs a smaller number of specimens. The characteristic values for the material characterisation are determined from the force-deformation diagrams.
Besides the standardised falling velocity of 4.4 m/s (according to 1 m falling height), we are able to make measurements with the drop tester of our accredited laboratories with testing speeds of up to 20 m/s. In addition, there is the possibility to test the specimens in a temperature chamber.
