Ceramics and glasses are known for their brittle material behavior. Ceramic materials find many applications in modern components due to their low specific weight and high strength, as well as their excellent physical and thermal characteristics. Glass and transparent ceramics are also indispensable for transparent surfaces. To provide an exact description of the material behavior, it is necessary to determine the material parameters under realistic loading. We offer the following services in this regard:

  • Bending tests: quasi-static to highly dynamic at >10 m/s,
  • Determination of compressive strengths up to a strain rate of >1000 s–1,
  • hydraulic bending test,
  • Determination of residual strengths of pre-damaged materials and
  • Development of material cards FEM calculations.

Further tests on request. We look forward to hearing from you!
