What materials are commonly tested using an Izod Charpy Impact tester?

Izod Charpy Impact tester, also referred to as an Izod impact testing machine, include metals, plastics, composites, and ceramics. Both Charpy and Izod tests are widely employed to evaluate the impact resistance and toughness of materials under dynamic loading conditions. These tests involve striking a notched specimen with a pendulum and measuring the energy absorbed or the specimen\’s ability to resist fracture. The results of Charpy and Izod tests provide valuable insights into material […]
