In-Plane Compression Test Jigs for Composite Materials
- Specially designed for testing the in-plane strength properties of thin, rigid plastics and composite materials
- Maximum capacity of 5 kN (1,100 lbf)
- Available as an ASTM D695 and ASTM D3846 compliant jig or a JIS K7076 (method A) and JIS K7018 (method 1) compliant jig
- Compressive force is applied to the end surface of the specimen
ASTM D695, ASTM D3846, JIS K7018 (Method 1), JIS K7076 (Method A)
In-plane compression test jigs for composite materials are specially designed for testing the in-plane strength properties of thin, rigid plastics, both non-reinforced and reinforced, and other composite materials. Specimens are held in the jigs in a vertical direction and a compressive force is applied to the specimen’s end surface.
Two in-plane compression test jigs for composite materials are available: an ASTM D695 and ASTM D3846 compliant jig and a JIS K7076 (method A) and JIS K7018 (method 1) compliant jig. A 100 mm (3.9 in) diameter spherically seated compression plate set is used to apply the compressive force and should be ordered along with the jigs.
In certain regions, kits are available comprising one type of in-plane compression test jig for composite materials, a 100 mm diameter spherically seated compression plate set, and a compression and bending loading jig matched to a specific model universal tester. Please consult with your local Shimadzu representative for further information.
Additional items needed for operation:
- 100 mm diameter spherically seated compression plate set

Given that cellulose nanofibers（CNFs）offer attractive physical characteristics, such as light weight, strength, and hardness, they not only enable materials with advanced functionality, but are expected to be used as a reinforcing material that can reduce the weight of composite materials.
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.
