Impact resistance can be among the most challenging qualities to measure. The capacity evaluate this property is particularly useful in assessing product liability and safety.

There are two standard kinds of impact test: Charpy and IZOD. Charpy tests are commonly performed on metals, but a few plastics and polymers can also be tested. IZOD tests can be performed on either plastic or metal specimens. A Charpy test specimen is usually a 55 x 10 x 10 millimetre bar. An IZOD specimen is typically a 64 x 12.7 x 3.2-millimetre bar.
