TMI Impact Testing Machine

Measures the impact resistance of polymers and composites.

The TMI Impact Testing Machine is used to measure the impact resistance of polymer and composite materials in compliance with ASTM D256.  A notching machine accompanies the instrument to create a precision notch in Izod-type samples.  A standardized pendulum-type hammer breaks the sample, and the impact energy absorbed by the sample is automatically calculated.  Different  hammers may be installed for "low" and "high" ranges of impact-resistace.
