  • Unraveling the Flexural Test

    The flexural test, also known as the bend test, assesses a material's resistance to bending or deformation when subjected to a three-point or four-point loading scheme. At KIYO, this test is performed with utmost accuracy to evaluate the mechanical behavior of plastic materials under bending stresses.

  • Adherence to Industry Standards

    KIYO R&D Center and Laboratory pride themselves on their commitment to internationally recognized standards, such as ASTM D790 (for three-point bending) and ISO 178 (for three-point and four-point bending). These standards ensure uniformity, reliability, and comparability of test results in the global arena.

  • Precise Sample Preparation

    For flexural testing, KIYO experts carefully prepare standardized specimens, ensuring accurate dimensions and geometries in accordance with ASTM and ISO guidelines. These specimens represent the plastic's actual application, allowing for more realistic evaluation.

  • Advanced Flexural Testing Equipment

    KIYO's state-of-the-art testing equipment is designed to perform both three-point and four-point flexural tests with high precision. Load cells and deflection sensors accurately measure the applied force and deformation during the test, providing invaluable data for analysis.

  • Determining Flexural Strength

    Flexural strength, also known as bending strength or modulus of rupture, is a key parameter assessed during the test. This property measures the maximum stress a material can withstand before it fractures under bending. KIYO's experts interpret the results meticulously, delivering comprehensive and reliable data.

  • Flexural Modulus - A Measure of Stiffness

    The flexural test also allows for the evaluation of the flexural modulus, which indicates a material's stiffness under bending stresses. Engineers and manufacturers rely on this data to design components that can withstand various loading conditions effectively.

  • Customized Testing Solutions

    While adhering to ASTM and ISO standards, KIYO offers tailored testing solutions to meet specific industry needs. The center's team collaborates closely with clients, ensuring that the test protocols align with the material's intended application, providing valuable insights for product development.
