Plastic films are widely used in packaging for a variety of products because of their excellent barrier properties, versatility, and cost-effectiveness. They can provide a barrier against moisture, oxygen, and light, helping to keep food fresh and free from contamination. It is important to test the dart impact of plastic films because this property is directly related to the ability of the material to resist puncture or tearing. Dart impact testing is used to determine the amount of energy required to puncture a material with a specific dart of a given weight and shape dropped from a specified height. To ensure this, we at Testronix have designed a highly advanced and versatile lab testing instrument known as a dart impact tester.

This is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that is used to test the impact resistance of materials against freely falling darts. This is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that work well to ensure that the test will be conducted in an accurate testing manner.

In this blog, we are going to provide you with brief information about the Testronix dart impact tester and how this testing instrument is useful in the packaging industry.

Avoid damage to your plastic films with reliable impact testing

One of the most significant concerns when it comes to plastic film packaging is the possibility of damage during transportation and handling. Punctures, tears, and other forms of damage can not only compromise the product's integrity but also result in significant financial losses for manufacturers and suppliers.

Reliable impact testing can help prevent this damage by accurately measuring the impact resistance of plastic films. By testing the material's ability to resist the force of a heavy dart dropped from a specific height, manufacturers can identify any weaknesses in the material and make adjustments to ensure that it meets the necessary performance standards.

Now, let us discuss brief information about the Testronix dart impact tester, and how this quality testing equipment is used to test the impact resistance of packaging films. So, let us get started!

All about Testronix dart impact tester

Testronix dart impact testing instrument is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that is used to test the impact resistance of films on the falling height of the dart and the weight of the dart.

The test can be conducted by various methods. The instrument also consists of a digital LED screen to provide the user with accurate results and to make the test operation easier. 

This testing instrument is easy to operate and adheres to various test standards such as Standard: IS 2508:1984(R2003), and ASTM D1709-16A. Plastic film manufacturers must ensure that the film is resilient and strong enough to withstand the impact of any external forces. Hence the dart impact tester is the most suitable instrument to calculate the impact and force at which a particular weight can rupture the plastic film.

You can easily test the quality of plastic films with a Testronix dart impact tester. Now, let us discuss the features of this quality testing instrument that makes it unique from others.

Features of Testronix dart impact tester

The Dart Impact Tester is a state-of-the-art testing device that has been designed with several advanced features to provide accurate and reliable testing results. The device is built on a rigid metallic base, which ensures stability and durability during the testing process. The electromagnetic hold and release mechanism for the dart is a unique feature that enables precise control over the dart release, allowing for consistent and repeatable test results.

This quality testing instrument by Testronix has been built with a quality edge that makes it easy for the manufacturers to conduct dart impact tests on the materials with ease.

The drop height adjustable clamp is another essential feature of the dart impact tester, allowing for flexibility in testing different types of plastic films. This feature makes it possible to adjust the height of the dart drop according to the thickness and density of the material being tested.

In addition, the circular annular clamping devices are specially designed to provide zero slippage during testing, ensuring that the plastic film remains securely in place during the impact. This helps to ensure accurate test results and prevent any potential damage to the material during the testing process.

Overall, the Dart Impact Tester's advanced features make it a reliable and effective tool for testing the impact resistance of plastic films, providing accurate and repeatable results to ensure product quality and safety.
