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

ASTM D3914 – In-Plane Shear Strength Testing of Pultruded Glass-Reinforced Plastic Rods

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

ASTM D3914 testing is used to measure the in-plane shear strength of pultruded, glass-fiber reinforced, thermosetting plastic rod in diameters ranging from 19 to 32 mm (¾ to 1 ¼ in.).

Shear tests of various kinds are widely used in the reinforced plastics industry to assess the strength of the reinforcement-to-resin bond in polyester-, vinyl ester-, and epoxy-resin composites.

Properties determined from this test may be used for quality control, research and development, and specification purposes.

Please email or call (304) 547-5800 for information regarding test procedures, results, specimen information, pricing or any other ASTM D3914 questions you may have.
