Plastic films are considered to be the widely used product to pack items that will have sharp edges. If the puncture resistance of these films will be too low then the product will cause a hole in the film and thus, it will significantly reduce the barrier of it. Thus, it is very important for you to test the quality of these plastic films in order to deliver accurate products to the customers. You can make use of the Testronix dart impact tester that is helpful in calculating the impact of the free-falling dart on plastic films. Here in this blog, we will provide you with the essential information about dart impact tester and how this lab testing instruments will be helpful in testing the quality of plastic films.

What is a dart impact tester and how it is useful for testing the strength of plastic films?

Plastic films are widely used in different industries for various packaging applications and undergo wear and tear. Thus, it is important for you to calculate the impact of a free-falling dart on a plastic film. The force at which the falling dart ruptures the plastic film under certain conditions will be calculated with the help of this impact tester. This testing equipment will determine the fracture characteristics of the materials and assess their durability and strength.

The Testronix dart impact tester assures compliance with quality standards. It is designed to meet the requirements of the International Standards Organization (ISO) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), ensuring accurate findings. This testing equipments is built to continuously provide the greatest level of accuracy and precision.

We are considered to be the best dart impact tester manufacturer in IndiaThe dart impact value is determined by the thickness of the film. This dart tester is strong enough to last for a long time because it is built on a rigid metallic base. The body has been built with powder-coated mild steel, which adds to the strength of this characteristic. The electromagnetic hold and release mechanism for the dart improves the instrument's precision. Furthermore, the drop height clamp is adjustable, allowing for customization. The circular annular clamping mechanisms are designed to keep slippage to a minimum.

Besides that, there are various features you will get with this testing instrument.

Features of dart impact tester

Testronix dart impact tester is a proficient lab testing instrument that is used to determine the impact strength of plastic films with ease. Under certain conditions, the force of the falling dart can burst the film, causing it to fail. With the help of a Testronix impact tester for films, you can easily assess the durability of plastic films under a free-falling dart.  

Below is the list of features you will get with the help of this testing equipment.

  • Built on a rigid metallic base.
  • Electromagnetic Hold and release mechanism for dart
  • Drop Height adjustable clamp
  • Circular annular clamping devices for zero slippage
  • Powder-coated mild steel material
  • Dimension: 415x500x2153 mm

With these features and technical specifications, you can easily conduct the dart impact test. Now, let us discuss its role in the plastic film manufacturing firm.

Role of dart impact tester in the plastic film industry for quality testing

Dart impact test is a traditional method used in the plastic film industry to determine the effect of a free-falling dart. The main objective of this lab testing instrument is to determine the impact strength or toughness of materials.

One of the biggest and major forces that a plastic film has to bear is from freely falling weights. The freely falling weight can really damage the plastic films and hence ruin the whole packaging of a product. The dart impact test method is one of the major testing methods that are used for testing the strength of the films and their ability to bear impact from a freely falling dart.
