The API is a high-performance pendulum impact tester that precisely determines absorbed impact energy and resistance to breakage of plastic specimens. Innovative mechanical design features make this instrument the most cost-effective and accurate impact tester available on the market.
It meets and exceeds all ASTM and ISO requirements and has the flexibility to satisfy future test standards. An optional cold box allows low temperature impact testing. Liquid carbon dioxide or liquid nitrogen brings the insulated stainless steel chamber from ambient to -50 or -60Â°C. When notching specimens for testing, use the Dynisco ASN Automatic Sample Notcher for accurate and reliable notches.
