Impact Tester | Falling Dart Impact Tester Model: F0008

Supplier: IDM Instruments® Pty Ltd

The Impact Tester, Falling Dart Impact Tester Model: F0008 covers the determination of the energy that causes Polyethylene Film to fail under specified conditions, with the impact of a free-falling dart.

Price Guide: POA

This energy is expressed in terms of weight (mass) of the dart falling from a specified height, which would result in 50% failure of specimens tested.

The unit employs a dart, with a 38mm diameter hemispherical head, dropped from a height of 660mm. This unit may be used for films whose impact resistance requires masses of approximately 50gms to 2 kg to fracture them.
