Impact Tester


The impact tester is used to make a reliable evaluation of the coatings resistance and flexibility by simulating actual impact conditions. A free falling object impacts the coated surface and simulates this stress under standardised conditions, so you can evaluate cracks, peeling, resistance to shocks, as well as the flexibility, adherence and elongation of the coating.
While the principle of testing remains te same, the various standards require different masses and heights to perform the test.
