Compression platens help determine compression modulus, strength, and yield strength on a wide range of materials and components. Fixed Platens are rigidly fixed, stiff and resistant to off center loads, ensuring parallelism is ensured during specimen failure. Standard options include platens where the platen edge can attach to optional deflection transducers, allowing direct displacement between equal sized platens during a compression test.

Anodized aluminum compression plates and platens are used to test cardboards, soft plastics, and other soft materials. We recommend hardened steel platens when testing small hard objects because aluminum plates can be nicked and damaged. Each platen is flat to 0.02 mm and includes sample centering circles.
