Making an impact


CPG recently purchased a new impact tester, a CEAST 9050 (Instron). With both V-notching and blade notching capabilities, we can perform Izod impact testing on materials in compliance with ASTM D256, as well as impact testing on UHMWPE per ASTM F648. The pneumatic release option on the impact tester allows very reproducible results.
