TG18 Three Point Bend Jig

Three Point Flexural Jig Operating in compression only. Specimen supports of 1mm, 4mm and 10mm (0.04, 0.16, 0.4 in) diameter are supplied as standard.

Determining the flexural properties of rigid and semi-rigid materials such as glass, ceramics, composites, wood and rigid plastics, etc... in the form of rectangular bars of standard or non-standard dimensions, moulded directly or cut from sheets or other shapes.

The following properties can be determined:
• Flexural Stress at a given time of test
• Flexural Stress at the conventional deflection
  (Flexural Stress at deflection X a preset figure
  determined by the standard used)
• Flexural Stress at Maximum Load
• Flexural Stress at Rupture
   Apparent Modulus of Elasticity in Flexure
   (modulus of elasticity determined by flexure test)
