Impact Testers - TablewareThe EJP ASTM Type Impact Tester has been designed for estimating the resistance of fired ceramic ware items to knocks and rough handling according to ASTM C-368.
One dual scale machine is now available for carrying out impact tests according to A.S.T.M. test method C 368, the lower scale for bone china domestic tableware, and the heavier for carrying out tests on more robust ware (e.g hotelware).
The impact tests are carried out on either glazed or unglazed samples at the centre of both flatware and hollow ware, at the rim of hollow ware, and edge chipping tests at the rim of flat-ware.
