GD143-474 ASTM D143 Test Fixture


Model# GD143-474

Meets ASTM D143 Tensile Testing Perpendicular to the Wood Grain. GD143-474 meets ASTM D143 tensile testing perpendicular to the wood grain test requirements which describes the size and shape of the grips used for tension testing wood specimens perpendicular to the grain. In the test, a timber specimen is cut into shape and placed into the fixture. A tensile test is conducted and the resulting tensile strength and maximum load are analyzed. The grips are made from precisely machined, high strength tool steel. Contact an application engineer to configure a solution to your application requirements.
