Product highlights

  • high accuracy tool
  • easy and convenient operation
  • steel construction
  • high safety level


The SCITEQ Charpy pendulum impact tester is used to conduct resilience tests on rigid plastic materials in order to determine their impact fragility characteristics under standard stress conditions. The test method conforms to ISO 179 – Part 1 (non-instrumented impact test).

The pipe sample can be cut by means of a copy milling machine. The pipe sample, supported near its ends as a horizontal beam, is impacted by a single blow of a striker, with the line of impact midway between the supports, and bent at a high, nominally constant, velocity.

The Charpy pendulum impact tester complies with the following standards: BS 2782, ISO 179, ISO 180, DIN 51 222, ASTM 256, ISO 8256 and ASTM D4812.
