For tensile testing of aramid fibers with a high modulus and strength to weight ratio, use pneumatic grips with a 3300 or 5900 machine to prevent slippage.
ASTM D3039 creates standards for tensile testing with polymer matrix composites, including carbon fiber specimens in an environmental chamber.
A high-capacity, floor mounted frame allows for stiffness, repeatability, and alignment with testing composite laminates in a temperature chamber.
With a unique shape and delicate materials, composite tow specimens present challenges for tensile testing, but an AutoX extensometer can assist in the process.
While testing strong aramid cords, aramid cords and yarn grips should be used to prevent possible internal and external slippage and increase accuracy.
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.
to meet strict industry standards, tensile test uni-directional carbon fiber laminates with a 5980 floor model with AlignPro and manual wedge grips.
To determine the tensile strength and modulus of composite laminates, load the products to failure with Instron Hydraulic Wedge grips on a 5900 series frame.
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.
The in-plane shear stress/shear strain response can be discovered with the tension test method by the ISO 14129 standards with an Instron 3300 or 5900 machine.
The strength, strain at failure, and modulus from isotropic and orthotropic fiber-reinforced plastic composites are tensile tested, following ISO 527.
To be NADCAP compliant, aerospace companies need to pass a checklist for mechanical tensile testing to ensure correct alignment.
To measure the flatwise tensile strength of sandwich construction, adhere materials to specimen blocks and then place into dual yoke fixtures and load axially.
