Due to the very large number of tests offered, descriptions of those most commonly requested have been gathered into the following groups:

ASTM C158 – Strength of Glass by Flexure

To request a quotation for any test email for a prompt reply

ASTM C158 testing covers the determination fo the modulus of rupture in bending of glass and glass-ceramics.

This procedure has methods for testing modulus of rupture of flat glass and comparative testing for modulus of rupture of glass and glass-ceramics.

Test specimens are inserted into the four-point bend fixture and loaded at a constant rate. A deflectometer is placed at the center of the specimen in order to measure deflection and strain at center-span throughout the test.

The calculated modulus of rupture is considered a valid measure of tensile strength.
