Charpy Impact Testing

Purpose and Benefits of Charpy Impact Testing

For over 50 years, ATS has been providing many industries with testing and inspection services including charpy impact testing. Charpy Impact Testing, also known as the Charpy V-notch testing, helps determine a material’s toughness. In our comprehensive materials testing labs our experts perform this test in accordance with multiple standards including but not limited to the ASTM, ISO and EN. Following the applicable standard to spec will determine your metal’s ductility or brittleness, which is an indicator of how much energy your specimen will absorb during fracture. Measuring the energy or observing the surface of the fracture, will reveal your material’s brittleness or ductility.

What Does the Fracture Surface Reveal?
  • Brittleness
  • Bright and Crystalline Surface; Absorbs Less Energy
  • Ductility
  • Dull and Fibrous; Absorbs More Energy
Popular Industry Standards Include:
  • ASTM E23
  • ASTM A370
  • ISO 148-1
  • EN 10045-1
