ISO 178 - Flexural properties of plastics and composites with three point bending tests

Determination of the flexural properties of rigid and semi-rigid plastics and composite materials using three-point bending tests according to ISO 178.

From this test, you will obtain the following parameters:

  • Conventional deflection

  • Flexural modulus

  • Flexural strength at conventional deflection

  • Flexural strength

  • Flexural strength at break

  • Bending at conventional deflection

  • Bending at break

The test is performed at 100 mm/min.
