Dart Impact Tester

The dart drop impact tester is an easy-to-use, ergonomically designed instrument used to measure the impact resistance of plastic film, coated paper and other materials. Two models available to comply with either ASTM D1709 method A and ASTM D1709 method B, ISO 7765-1, ASTM D5628 – Geometry FB.

A pneumatic sample clamp is used to secure the specimen in place for ease of operation. A safety feature means that the operator needs to simultaneously activate dual switches mounted on either side of the instrument to engage the clamp and initiate the dart drop.

The dart drop tester provides a dual clamping sequence. The first phase utilizes low-pressure to safely clamp the sample followed by a high-pressure clamping prior to testing. The final phase of the test is completed with an automatic dart release.
