Bending test usually involves the measurement of ductility of different samples and materials. Through this test, the samples are taken to a specific limit to measure that how much load a sample can bear in order to measure the relationship of the material bending to load specification to generate material’s pass or fail criteria. The test procedure involves bending a material until the material experience a break and helps to determine both deflections of material with respect to a load in order to initiate the break limit of the sample.
There are two types of bending tests that can be performed on the basis of the type of material i.e. 3 Point bending and 4 points bending. The material that can be tested using bending/ folding/ Stiffness measurement test methods are plastics, wood, metals, boards, ceramic tiles, laminates, and glasses as well. There are numerous standards that are introduced to perform bending test by standardization authorities to perform the test in an accurate manner. Presto Stantest offers highly accurate and reliable testing instruments to perform the bending test and stiffness test. The instruments are designed as per the standards that are introduced by various standardization authorities. For more information on the testing instruments, contact our experts.
