Shear Strength Test by ASTM D732

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Need help or have a question? Related Polymer Shear Test Services: A male punch is then forced through the hole in the metal fixture causing shear along the edge of the hole.

ASTM D covers punch-type shear tests used in determining the shear strength of test specimens d372 organic plastic sheets and molded disks in thicknesses from 1.

It is intended for use as a materials screening and materials comparison test of plastics available in the form of sheets or molded disks. Forces up to 10 kN 2, lbf Low force tabletop systems Modular series of five frame options with adjustable test space Affordable testing option for tension, compression, bend, peel and much more.

Validating the specifications, value and safety of your asmt materials, products and assets.

Moreover, the fact that the shear strength is calculated by dividing the load by the area of the shear strength is calculated by dividing the load by the area of the sheared edge circumference X thickness should not be interpreted as indicating that the shear strength value so obtained is solely a material property, independent of thickness.

ASTM D732 Shear Punch Test Equipment for Plastics

Select from list below: The lower end of the punch is then placed in the hole in the base plate lower left d32 the cover plate top is bolted on to hold the specimen securely in place. By means of our plastic testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the testing solution that is right for you.

Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. Therefore, it is advisable to refer to that material specification before using this test method.

Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 42, people in 1, locations in over countries. The test is performed by clamping a test sample attached to a 1-inch punch d32 two metal fixtures. For both fixtures, a specimen in the form of a bar of rectangular cross section is simply placed in a slot in the base and a flat-bottomed guillotine is pressed against the bar, shearing it into three pieces. Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards.

Touchstone Research Laboratory, Ltd. Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups: Shear strength obtained by a tool of the punch type is one of x732 recognized methods of comparing materials asym obtaining data for engineering design.


There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard. ASTM D test procedure: Other non-standard, comparative-type punch shear test methods have also been developed. ASTM D specifies constant rate of extension testing machine universal test machine. Through our network of over 43, people in 1, laboratories and offices in countries, Intertek provides quality and safety solutions to asmt wide range of industries around the world.


Shear strength testing is used to determine the load at which a plastic or film will yield when sheared between two metal edges. Have a question about conducting the test for this standard?

Wyoming Test Fixtures Inc. Force range of 5 kN to kN 1, lbf tolbf Adjustable test space The most popular choice for static tension and compression tests These dual column testers are available in both tabletop and floor standing models.

Inspection Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. Sources of Additional Information: The values given in parentheses are for information only. Send us a request Wilton UK: As a materials screening test it does have the advantages of requiring a simple specimen and utilizing a simple test procedure.

The aatm of the sheared edge is equal to the circumference of the punch multiplied by the thickness of the specimen. Send us a request Need help or have a question?

Shear strength results are important to designers of film and sheet products that tend to be subjected to shear loads, or in applications where applied crushing loads are a risk. Moreover, the fact that the shear strength is calculated by dividing the load by the area of the sheared edge punch circumference X specimen thickness does astk interpret as indicating the shear strength value so obtained is solely a material property, independent of thickness.
