Impact testing is the measure of a material’s resistance to the sudden application of force.
Impact testing is the measure of a material’s resistance to the sudden application of force. Measuring properties like plastic deformation, ductility, and brittleness of materials is essential for proper material selection, ensuring quality control and reliability for finished products. Depending on the sample requirements, experts choose ASTM and ISO standard testing procedures like Izod, Charpy, Gardner, tensile impact testing, etc. Izod and Charpy tests are the most common impact tests performed to evaluate the strength or toughness of plastics, metals, and other composite materials.
Both Charpy and Izod testing machines measure the energy absorbed by the material after a high-load impact from a swinging pendulum.
Charpy Impact Testing:
Izod Impact Testing:
Testing machines can be configured to perform Charpy, Izod, and other standardized methodologies and can measure from 1 ft-lb up to 700 ft-lb. Tests are performed at a wide range of temperatures, from -320°F to 2000°F. Machining services are available for sample preparation before testing.

Impact test measures the ability of a material to withstand an impact. This knowledge is important for engineers to predict operational behaviours of these materials.
Impact test measures the amount of energy absorbed by a material when it undergoes fracture.
There are two main types of impact tests: Charpy test and Izod test
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
