The Falling Dart Impact Tester covers the determination of the energy that causes Polyethylene Film to fail under specified conditions, with the impact of a free-falling dart. This energy is expressed in terms of weight (mass) of the dart falling from a specified height, which would result in 50% failure of specimens tested.
Gelbo Flex Tester is used to determine whether certain laminations of plastic withstand repetitive strain. By attaching sample pieces of laminated plastic to the two circular clamping disks, via hose clamps, the specimen is twisted and turned to the specific movements. This process will show a visual result of pinholding and delamination.
The EZ-Cup Vapometer consists of a light weight aluminum cup and an aluminum threaded flanged ring with two neoprene gaskets with a Teflon seal that hold the specimen in place. Designed to measure the water vapor permeability of materials including nonwovens and a variety of plastic films.
