High Speed Puncture Test of Plastics



Puncture properties can be measured by adding impact by a striker with the high and constant speed to a sample. The amount of the force and the amount of the deformation generated by the impact can be measured as the impact wave. More information on puncture properties can be obtained by this test than Pendulum Impact Test .

Test Method
