TMI 43-62 Falling Dart Impact Tester

Product Ref: TMI 43-62

The Advanced Falling Dart Impact Tester is intended for the determination of mechanical properties of packaging material such as plastic films, laminates and paper.


This new Ray-Ran Bench-Top Falling Dart Impact Tester provides a method for determining the energy that causes thin flexible materials such as plastic film, paper and composite sheets to fail under specified conditions of impact from a free-falling dart. The energy required to tear or puncture the test specimen is expressed in terms of the dart's weight which would result in the failure of 50% of specimens being tested per ASTM and ISO testing standards.
