Tensile Impact test

The tensile impact test is a tensile test with a very high deformation speed.

However, the only value determined is the impact energy consumed. The tensile impact test frequently has a large spread of measured values. It should consequently only be used if no break occurs in impact or notched impact tests or if it is expressly required, for example in case of thermal ageing according to UL 746 B in order to determine the TI.

Results of the test methodValues for stress and strain such as:
  • Tensile impact strength of an unnotched specimen, atU [KJ/m²]
  • Tensile impact strength of a notched specimen, atN [KJ/m²]
