ASTM D6110 is used to determine the resistance of plastics to breakage by flexural shock as indicated by the energy extracted from standardized pendulum type hammers in breaking standard specimens with one pendulum swing. This test method requires specimens to be made with a milled notch. The notch produces a stress concentration which promotes a brittle, rather than a ductile, fracture. The results of ASTM D6110 are reported in terms of energy absorbed per unit of specimen width.
