Plastic Impact Tester

For testing the impact resistance of coatings on plastic substrates, an impact tester is ideal.

The light duty impact tester is designed to measure a maximum force of 28 inch-pounds. The heavy duty impact tester uses a heavier weight to impact the plastic. The maximum force is 160 inch-pounds. When evaluating extremely rigid sheets of PVC and similar types of materials, the extra heavy duty impact tester (SPI Modified Impact Tester) is available. The maximum force is 320 inch-pounds.  

The impact testers offer the following details:

1. a solid base with a guide tube support
2. a slot in the guide tube to direct the weight that slides inside the guide tube
3. a collar that fits on the tube that helps the user slide the tube weight to the accurate height.
4. graduated marks along the side of the slot to facilitate readings
5. a variety of dies, punches and weights to allow you meet ASTM specific test methods for testing plastic impact resistance
