Falling Dart Impact Testers

Available from IDM Instruments® Pty Ltd

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

2x Aluminium Dart Head - 38mm (50g)
