Importance of Choosing the Right Materials
Applied Technical Services performs the Izod impact test to determine important physical capabilities of material samples. By quantifying a specimen’s impact strength, charting its ductility, and characterizing its overall impact toughness, ATS’ expert mechanical testing technicians can help clients determine the suitability of their design materials for their final product’s intended use.
Certain materials are more appropriate for a given use than others based on their various characteristics. For instance, some materials hold up well under extreme pressures while others do not — a product designer would keep these traits in mind when selecting component materials for critical applications such as a deep-sea breathing apparatus. Each constituent material’s performance characteristics play an integral role in determining a product’s overall effectiveness. Manufacturers send samples to mechanical testing labs like ATS to verify the many physical properties of design materials. By performing Izod impact testing, we can help them discover whether their materials perform acceptably.
How the Test Works
ATS’ mechanical testing personnel perform Izod testing to its internationally recognized standard specifications, namely ISO 180 and ASTM D256. Our materials testing lab is ISO 17025 (A2LA) accredited to perform ASTM D256.
