Bend Testing Universal Testing Systems
ADMET material testing systems accurately and reliably measure the flexural properties of metals, concrete, plastics, medical devices and other products and components. Our machines can calculate flexural modulus, flexural strength, and yield point at capacities up to 600kN. Examples of bend tests include measuring the flexural strength of a golf club, or determining the amount of flexural force needed to break a component or product.
Common bend testing standards include:
- ASTM C1609 – Standard Test Method for Flexural Performance of Fiber-Reinforced Concrete (Using Beam With Third-Point Loading)
- ASTM D790 – Standard Test Methods for Flexural Properties of Unreinforced and Reinforced Plastics and Electrical Insulating Materials
- ASTM D6272 – Standard Test Method for Flexural Properties of Unreinforced and Reinforced Plastics and Electrical Insulating Materials by Four-Point Bending
- ASTM D7264 – Standard Test Method for Flexural Properties of Polymer Matrix Composite Materials

Bend Testing Fixtures
Bend fixtures are used to determine the flexural properties of rigid and semi-rigid materials. They are available in a variety of capacities, spans, and support diameters and widths. Both 3 or 4 point configurations are available. ADMET bend fixtures conform to ASTM D790. We also offer the bend fixture and transducer package for ASTM C1609 testing.
