Tubular Impact Testers

Tubular Impact Tester

Many surface coatings are subject to the risk of damage by impact. Impact testers allow reproducible conditions of impact to be defined. Impact Testers allow pass/fail limits to be established and a classification of the coating to be achieved.

This instrument consists of a graduated vertical tube mounted into a solid base. This tube acts as a guide for an impacting weight of pre-determined mass. The height from which this falls is variable. By using the locking collar, exactly the same force of impact can be produced for each test. The weight and indenter are combined and strike the panel directly.

The test panel is placed on the die. The panel is held firmly by a clamping sleeve. The weight is raised to a set height and released. The height is increased by 2.5 cm (1")1". (2.5cm) intervals until coating failure is seen. The Testers can be used as a pass/fail test by calculation of the impact energy (height x mass), and for the classification of the test sample. For detailed procedures, please refer to the relevant national standard.


  • Sturdy construction & heavy duty frame/base
  • Easy clamping & depth adjustment (DIN EN ISO)
