Puncture Testing Universal Testing Systems

ADMET universal testing systems equipped with a puncture test fixture are capable of determining the puncture resistance of materials such as plastics, films, fabrics, geomembranes, and related products. Puncture testing primarily involves tear and stiffness and measures the resistance of a test specimen to puncture. ADMET offers a selection of puncture fixtures with varying probe and clamp sizes designed according to many ASTM and ISO test standards.

Common puncture testing definitions and keywords include:

  • Puncture resistance: The resisting force to penetration or puncture. Puncture resistance measurements are expressed in force units.
  • Puncture strength: The maximum stress a specimen can withstand before it exhibits failure by a penetrating or puncturing object. Puncture strength measurements are expressed in force per unit area.

Common puncture testing standards include:
