Precision Guided Flexural and Interlaminar Shear Bend Fixture
CP110860 | Precision Guided Flexural and Interlaminar Shear Bend Fixture
Suitable for testing to wide range of ASTM, EN and ISO standards with suitable anvils. This fixture incorporates very low friction precision guidance as well as precision centring of the anvils.
2 methods for precision span setting for ILSS testing are provided.
- A central locating pin, precision aligned with upper anvil allowing for user supplied spacers to easily set lower anvil spans to high repeatability and tolerance.
- The optional CP108199 micrometers are available to be mounted on ILSS lower anvils to allow precise spans setting within 0.01 mm tolerance against the upper anvil.

Interlaminar shear testing is a simple test on, easy to prepare, polymer composite specimens that gives a measure of the strength of the bond between fibers and matrix. Another common test for polymer composites is flexure testing. The Instron® Modular Flexural and Interlaminar Shear Strength (ILSS) bend fixture system, with a range of interchangeable anvils, is suitable for testing to a number of international standards, including ASTM D2344, D790, EN 2562, EN 2563, ISO 14125, and ISO 14130.
