GC1358-175 ASTM C1358 Test Fixtures


Model# G109
Force Up to 500 kN (112,500 lbf)

GC1358-175 is designed to be used to determine compressive strength of ceramic materials, as specified by ASTM C1358. ASTM allows for many grips to be used with the test practices of C1358, but warns that point or line contact grips may crack the brittle test specimen. Wedge grips, pneumatic grips, and hydraulic passive grips work well to hold the test specimen without damaging it.
