Testing Standards You Can Count On
ASTM—the American Society for Testing and Materials committee— has developed more than 30 standards for repeatable testing of composite materials. Micro-Measurements’ gages reflect these industry standards:
- ASTM D5379 (Shear Properties of Composite Materials by the V-Notched Beam Method) describes a unique test for determining shear modulus, and the line of Shear Modulus Gages developed by Micro-Measurements were designed around this test.
- ASTM D5450 (Transverse Tensile Properties of Hoop Wound Polymer Matrix Composite Cylinders) requires the use of rectangular rosette strain gage sensors, like Micro-Measurements’ unique C2A-06-250WW-350 pattern.
Below is a selection guide of Micro-Measurements’ products best suited for any composite material:
