By placing test specimens under strenuous loads and conditions, destructive testing allows for the determination of the parts' properties, service life, and design weaknesses. In order to provide the best results, Amron offers a wide range of destructive testing methods. ​​​

Toughness

(Charpy V-Notch - 264ft-lb) 

By striking a notched specimen with a fixed weighted pendulum, the toughness (energy absorbed per unit area during fraction) is determined.

​•ASTM E23

Hardness

(Brinell • Rockwell)

​By subjecting a test specimen to a fixed load and indenter, hardness tests measure the materials' hardness by revealing the specimens ability to resist indentation.

•ASTM E10

•ASTM E18


Tensile

By subjecting a test specimen to a controlled load until failure, the yield points, ultimate tensile strength, and measures of ductility are determined. 120,000 lb. testing capacity.

•ASTM E8​

Concrete

Concrete compressive testing (cylinders).

•ASTM C39

ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT

•Nikon 6C Optical Comparator

​​•Forma 8500 Series Ultra-Low Temperature Freezer

•Epsilon Extensometer
