Compression Test Jigs for Composite Materials
- For compression testing fiber-reinforced plastics and composite materials
- Converts a compressive force into a shear force along the wedge grip-specimen interface
- Two versions: an ASTM D3410 compliant jig and an ISO 8515 and JIS K7076 (method B) compliant jig
- 20 kN (4,400 lbf) maximum capacity
ASTM D3410, ISO 8515, JIS K7076 (Method B)
These test jigs incorporate wedge grips to apply a compressive force to a flat specimen as a shear force along the wedge grip-specimen interface. They are used for testing fiber-reinforced plastics and other composite materials. Two jigs are available: an ASTM D3410 compliant jig and an ISO 8515 and JIS K7076 (method B) compliant jig. A 100 mm (3.9 in) diameter spherically seated compression plate set is required to apply the compressive force to the jigs.
Both compression test jigs for composite materials consist of wedged grips, a grip-setting gauge, tapered sleeves, a cylindrical guide, and a specimen removal kit. The tapered sleeve and cylindrical guide provide stability to the jig and the tapering between the grip and the sleeve prevents chuck slippage, which ensures accurate testing.
Kits comprising a compression test jig for composite materials, a spherically seated compression plate set, and a compression and bending loading jig are available in some regions. Please contact your local Shimadzu representative for details.

Latest issue of Shimadzu Journal, featuring Materials Science, has come out.
This issue focuses on Materials Science particularly on lithium-ion batteries (LiBs). It starts with two customer interviews in which users discuss their relationship with Shimadzu.
Hydrogen Energy Analysis Solutions for Quality Control of Hydrogen
Impurities in hydrogen production affect subsequent industrial processes. Strict purity standards have been defined for hydrogen used in fuel cells (ISO 14687-2019). This is because if hydrogen contains carbon monoxide, sulfur components, etc., the catalyst of the fuel cell will be damaged. The hydrogen fuel standard for FCVs (ISO 14687 TypeII GradeD) defines many items to be controlled, and Shimadzu analytical instruments can play a role in analyzing these items.

Shimadzu has released the MIV-X Ultrasonic Optical Flaw Detector
The MIV-X visualizes and digitizes flaws (peeling, cracks, and voids) in parts and multi-materials in aircraft, automobiles, and electrical and electronic equipment using our proprietary ultrasonic optical flaw detection technology, which acquires an image of the propagation of ultrasonic on the surface of an object.
Shimadzu has released TRAPEZIUM SATELLITE Testing Machine Remote Monitoring System
Shimadzu announces the release of TRAPEZIUM SATELLITE, a remote monitoring system for testing machines. This system enables the remote assessment of test conditions by checking instrument images using a USB camera and operating status data obtained from the fatigue testing machine.
