 Impact and flexibility testingimpact-testing

The Impact Tester is a widely used device for the coating and plastic industries. In both industries impact resistance is measured by a falling weight from a controlled distance.

For plastic materials the force is increased until structural failure occurs. In the case of a coated surface, failure will appear as a crack in the paint film.

The impact tester creates a deformation in the surface that can also be used to measure a coating’s flexibility.

For a coating to perform properly during use, the paint must have the proper amount of flexibility to withstand cracking under stress.

A common test for paint flexibility is bending a coated panel over a cylindrical or conical shaped bar in a mandrel bender. The cupping tester is another coating flexibility tester that slowly pushes a round punch through a coated panel until cracking occurs in the paint film. The degree of bending or deformation of the coated surface is measured to assess the coating flexibility.

BYK-Gardner offers a wide variety of models and accessories for both impact and flexibility testing.
