Impact Testing

The behaviour of polymers depends strongly on the loading speed. Hence, it is necessary for a broad characterisation to carry out experiments at higher speeds (impact loading or rather dynamic testing) besides the quasi-static tests (tensile, compression or bend test).

In our accredited laboratory MPK, we offer you the following test methods for your investigations:

Besides the determination of impact strength and notch impact strength, we can also determine the fracture mechanics characteristic values under impact loading.
