High precision for strain measurement of plastics and fiber-reinforced composites

The videoXtens 2-120 HP sets new standards in accuracy and reproducibility.

If high precision is required for strain measurement on plastics and fiber-reinforced composites, the videoXtens 2-120 HP is the perfect non-contact solution.

  • Compliance with the strict requirements for tensile modulus values to ISO 527-1 Annex C, including exact measurement of the tensile modulus values.
  • This high level of accuracy is also attained at temperature inside a ZwickRoell temperature chamber.
  • As the system employs non-contact measurement, material characteristic values are unaffected. Operator influence is also minimized, ensuring consistent test results.

Typical applications videoXtens 2-120 HP

Typical applications videoXtens 2-120 HP

Plastics to ISO 527-1 or ASTM D638
Fiber-reinforced composites

Plastics to ISO 527-1 or ASTM D638

Requirements of ISO 527-1 for determination of tensile modulus: max. error ± 1 µm / ±1.5 µm when measuring the differential displacement between two measuring points (with elongation of 0.05% and 0.25% of the initial gauge length, with an initial gauge length L0 of 50 mm / 75 mm.
We recommend self-adhesive gauge marks (strips).

Specific advantages in this application

  • Satisfies the exacting calibration requirements for tensile modulus values to ISO 527-1, Annex C.
  • High-accuracy measurement of tensile modulus.
  • ZwickRoell extensometers exceed the requirements of the standards and are calibrated over the entire measurement range to Accuracy Class 0.5, ISO 9513.
  • Even brittle-fracturing plastics specimens can be tested without damaging the extensometer.
  • High-accuracy testing with ZwickRoell temperature chamber, including with determination of tensile modulus to ISO 527-1.
  • Enclosed system - connection via tunnel when testing in temperature chamber.
  • Resistant to environmental influences (e.g. air currents, variations in lighting); flexible tunnel minimizes signal interference.
  • Optimum, uniform specimen illumination by LEDs incorporated into the tunnel.

 

 

 

 

Fiber-reinforced composites

  • Tensile tests on filament strands and laminates of fiber composites, e.g to ISO 527-4/-5, ASTM D3039, ASTM D4018
  • In-plane shear tests (±45° method): In-plane shear response to ISO 14129 and ASTM D3518 (transverse strain software option required)

Specific advantages in the application:

  • Brittle-fracturing fiber composites can be tested up to break without damaging the extensometer.
  • Accuracy class 0.5 to EN ISO 9513. ZwickRoell extensometers exceed the requirements of the standards and are calibrated over the entire measurement range to ISO 9513, in accuracy class 0.5.
  • Accuracy class B1 to ASTM E83 from a gauge mark distance of 15 mm.
  • Highly accurate testing with ZwickRoell temperature chamber, also for determination of the tensile modulus to ISO 527-1.
  • The tunnel connection keeps the system closed for tests in a temperature chamber.
  • Resistant to environmental influences (e.g. air currents, variations in lighting): flexible tunnel minimizes signal interference.
  • Optimum, uniform specimen illumination by LEDs incorporated into the tunnel.

Technical overview

  • Calibration requirements for tensile modulus values to ISO 527-1, Annex C
