GC1358-175
GC1358-175 test fixture meets ASTM C1358 requirements. GC1358-175 can 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.
