Why do we deal with these standards in such detail?
Here you will find an overview of important international standards with a focus on glass, in particular impact resistance and impact load. It is important for us to communicate the standards, test setups, and procedures in a clear and simple way. Glass is a material that is very important to us and has not been researched enough. There is a lack of bundled special knowledge about the impact resistance of glass and we want to close this gap.
Why impact testing
The impact test has enormous scientific significance and practical relevance. A collision between two objects or objects can often cause damage to one or both. The damage can be a scratch, crack, breakage or breakage. Therefore, developers need to know how materials and products behave under the influence and what the forces are that they can resist.
What is the goal of an impact test?
The aim of the impact test is to analyze the weak points of the test object. The data then provides important information to improve the product and make it more impact-resistant, robust and safer.
The increased durability and safety of the product contribute significantly to greater brand trust.
Standard EN/IEC 60068 consists of 3 methods for testing the impact resistance of a test object against impacts with different severity levels. It serves to demonstrate the mechanical strength of a product and is intended primarily for the testing of electrical equipment.
