Brittleness Testers

Brittleness testers gauge the lowest temperature at which elastic materials do not break below specified temperatures and stress. Test samples might be cooled through the use of dry ice, refrigeration or liquid nitrogen.

Information acquired by this technique can be used to calculate the behavior of elastic materials at low temperatures and high pressures, which is useful in a number of applications like the production seals to be used in cold weather.
