The ISO 14130 standard details methods for finding the apparent interlaminar shear stress and strain of fibre reinforced plastic composites. The standard utilizes the short-beam method wherein a simply supported short rectangular specimen is loaded at the midpoint. Materials that may be tested for this standard include plastic composites with thermosetting and thermoplastics matrices that exhibit shear failure. The testing machine should conform to ISO 5893 with regard to loading speed and load indicator error limits.

By means of our testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the solution that is right for you. Give our test engineers a call today for help configuring the best test machine and accessories according to ISO 14130.
