Tension Testing of Pipe and Tube to ASTM A370, ISO 6892-1, API5L, and ISO 3183
Best practices for addressing the challenges of testing rebar to global standards that specify mechanical properties and testing requirements.
The Industrial Series Model 600 KPX has a long stroke actuator and large test space perfect for tensile testing of multi-wire stands made for prestressed concrete.
To test Type A, B, or C gray iron following ASTM A48, use an Industrial Series 300LX load frame with split sleeve shouldered end specimen holders made for gray iron.
With the Industrial Series 300LX fame and USTA adapters, perform tensile testing of ductile iron like sewer pipes in accordance with ASTM A736.
A Model 5969 frame with self-aligning fixtures can determine the adhesion or cohesion strength of thermal spray coatings, observing ASTM C633.
The 2717 Elastomeric O-Ring Test Fixtures can determine the physical properties of O-rings without local stress concentrations or slippage.
ASTM D5034 is used to determine the tensile properties of woven fabrics using the grab method.
ASTM D5035 is used to determine the tensile properties of woven fabrics using the strip method.
When testing the strength and elongation of medical gloves to uphold international and FDA standards, one has to be careful with measuring strain without damage.
While testing strong aramid cords, aramid cords and yarn grips should be used to prevent possible internal and external slippage and increase accuracy.
With thin plastic sheeting, grips need to prevent slippage without prematurely tearing the specimen in tensile testing in accordance with ASTM D882.
Pneumatic Cord and Yarn Grips allow testing of tire cord to the ASTM D885 standard.
With temperature tension tests of metals to calculate tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation or reduction, follow ASTM E21 to meet modern requirements.
Pneumatic grips can be used with testing soft tissue substrates to understand the wound closure strength of tissue adhesives, following ASTM F2458.
The Industrial Series 1000HDX frame with spherical tension rods and standard bolt holders follows ASTM F606 to test threaded fasteners correctly and efficiently.
With a high tensile strength, Basalt Fiber Reinforced Plastic material developed by basalt in the earth's crust can be used as rebar in the civil engineering industry.
A 5948 MicroTester can be used to determine the strength of bioadhesives to be sure that a correct concentration of drugs is delivered into biological substrates.
Tensile testing of catheter tubing with pneumatic cord and yarn grips determines the breaking strength for quality control. Tortuosity testing of catheter tubing enables researchers to quantify the frictional forces during insertion and removal of medical tubing.
When testing composite mesh, a testing machine can be used with pneumatic side action grips, but the testing solutions for other materials depend on composition.
Pneumatic side action grips combined with custom wedge inserts can be used to test high strength conveyor belt material.
When testing fine wires made for the interconnections between PCBs and ICs in the microelectronic industry, take care to not harm the sensitive specimens.
Axial and transverse extensometers with Bluehill Universal software can perform ISO, ASTM, and JIS tests to determine the plastic strain ratio, or the r-value, of metallic materials.
When determining the tensile stress-strain properties of rubber, self-tightening or pneumatic side action grips can be used with long travel or video extensometers.
Video extensometry and pneumatic grips with rubber faces the same width of the specimen should be used in tensile testing of delicate plastic films and sheets.
For testing polymer hydrogels, use an electromechanical test system with a low force load cell, pneumatic or manual screw action grips, and a BioPuls™ Bath for realistic testing conditions.
Non-contracting strain measurement using the Advanced Video Extensometer 2 allows for an easier workflow.
A Model SF-16 split furnace can be used with an Industrial Series 300 DX system or a 5900 Series Test System for hot tensile testing.
Non-contacting extensometers can be used to measure strain of biological specimens without early damage, and various techniques can be used to mark the soft tissues.
For tensile testing high strength webbing material, Instron provides capstan grips to prevent slippage and jaw breaks.
ANSI/AWS B4.0 produces guidelines for mechanical testing of welds, including tensile testing to determine the Ultimate Tensile Strength.
