Charpy & Izod Impact Testing

Charpy & Izod tests are both types of impact tests which are performed on materials. The tests are performed by striking a test sample with a pendulum hammer. These tests are used to measure a materials resistance to impact from a swinging pendulum.


Tension & Compression Testing

We offer testing to check a material or products performance against tensile, flexural & compression forces being applied.

Mechanical Impact (IK)

Mechanical impact (IK) coding, or international mechanical protection, is the degree of protection an enclosure provides against harmful external mechanical impacts such as vandalism or accidental contact.
