A single column system can be used with a webcam connected to Bluehill Universal to track the force needed to tear flexible plastic film in accordance with ASTM D1004-13.
To determine tensile and elongation properties of microtensile plastics in accordance with ASTM D1708-13, use a 3345 system with a 225 lb. load cell.
Instron assisted a steel manufacturer with a 5985 testing system and model SF-16 split furnace to perform tensile tests to a specimen at a high temperature.
Different sized shoulder-end metals are needed to tensile test to ASTM E8 and A370 standards, and Split Insert Tensile Holders add ease to changing the inserts.
The AutoX 750 and AVE can be used for tensile testing metallic materials to ASTM E8 standards and reduce the operator interaction with the specimen.
With a high tensile strength, Basalt Fiber Reinforced Plastic material developed by basalt in the earth's crust can be used as rebar in the civil engineering industry.
The strength, strain at failure, and modulus from isotropic and orthotropic fiber-reinforced plastic composites are tensile tested, following ISO 527.
For a manufacturers testing steel cord, Instron has specialized grips to simplify testing.
A Model SF-16 split furnace can be used with an Industrial Series 300 DX system or a 5900 Series Test System for hot tensile testing.
