From reinforcement bar to tubular products, metal producers are faced with a host of testing challenges. Manufacturers of metal products must not only meet advertised strength and performance ratings, but also comply with a wide range of ASTM, ISO, EN, JIS, SAE and other international standards. Instron is the total solution provider for tension, impact, fatigue, bend/flex, shear, and torsion testing.
Testing reinforcement bar (rebar) presents many challenges. Instron systems are designed to meet these challenges and are compliant with the following standards: ISO 6892-1:2009, 15630-1; ASTM E8M: 2013, A370, A615; AC133; BS 4449; GB 1499; and JIS G3112.
