  • ASTM D 1709
  • ASTM D 4272
  • JIS K7124
  • AS/NZS 4347.6

F0008-M2: Falling Dart Impact Tester - A & B Method 1x Aluminium Dart Head - 38mm (50g)1x Stainless Steel Dart Head - 50mm (280g)Drop Height: 660mm & 1500mmBrass Weights - 2x5g, 8x15g, 8x30g, 8x60g, 2x15g, 8x45g, 8x90g

Kinetic Energy Option (pictured) as per ASTM D4272: Total Energy Impact of Plastic Films. The Falling Dart Impact Tester is mounted on top of the Kinetic Energy option. There is a catch box and two optical filter sensors measuring the fall time difference after breaking the film and passingthrough which is displayed on an instrument panel as time.
