SDL Atlas instrument tests water impact penetration

Posted September 1, 2020

 

ROCK HILL, S.C. – SDL Atlas said it has introduced the Impact Penetration Tester, precisely designed to satisfy AATCC Test Method 42: Water Resistance: Impact Penetration.

 

Originally developed to predict for rain penetration, AATCC TM 42 has been adopted by the medical industry as a measure of liquid barrier performance for personal protective equipment (PPE).

 

This Type II Design Impact Penetration Tester is specifically designed to meet AATCC TM42. The instrument is comprised of a sturdy frame, made of high-grade stainless steel, which allows for precise and repeatable test results. 

 

The instrument features a number of attributes deigned to ensure accurate testing, including a small blade inside the funnel to allow water to move smoothly through the funnel without any swirling motion, strong clamps to hold the sample firmly in place, a weighted bottom clamp to hold the sample flat and an integrated drip catcher to catch any leftover water from the previous test. An air-bubble on the base shows when the instrument is properly leveled.

 

The new Impact Penetration Tester is now available worldwide. SDL Atlas also supplies the specialized 6” x 9” Blotting Paper the test requires.

 

Committed to providing customers confidence in standard based testing, SDL Atlas has offices and experts in the United States, United Kingdom, Hong Kong and China, plus agents serving over 100 countries, SDL Atlas is ready to support its customers with instruments, test materials and services anywhere in the world.
