GD3410 ASTM D3410 Test Fixture


Model# GD3410

GD3410 fixture is for determining the compressive strength of polymer matrix composite materials. GD3410 transmits force to the specimen via tapered rectangular wedge grips. The mating surfaces of the wedge grip assembly are polished, lubricated, and nick-free to ensure smooth sliding contact between the components. By using wedges of different thicknesses, specimens of varying thickness can be tested in this fixture.
