The IMPact 5 - 5.5 - 25 - 50 pendulum impact tester are designed for the determination of impact strength / resilience on standardized specimen and test bars made of plastic.

These instruments are suitable for carrying out tests in accordance with the following standards:

  • ISO 179 and 180
  • DIN 53435
  • ASTM D 256 Methods A and B
  • ISO 8256 and others 

Pendulums in the energy range from 0.5 to 5 J or 0.5 to 5.5 J (IMPact 5 or 5.5) as well as from 0.5 to 25 J / 50 J (IMPact 25 / 50) can be used for impact tests according to IZOD, Charpy, Dynstat and tensile impact on different materials with different sample dimensions. Various sample supports and clamping devices for different standard specimen dimensions are available.

For the configuration of a test sequence, data acquisition and evaluation, a PC can also be used using a comprehensive WINDOWS® software.
