Perfect impact testing – that’s the spirit!

When you need assurance that the distance between each impact always meets a standard, look no further than our impact tester. For this purpose we have built a spirit-level into the device for complete confidence.  

Impact test for Powder Coating

Impact testing is a crucial evaluation method for assessing the durability and resilience of powder coatings. This test involves subjecting coated materials to controlled impacts, simulating real-world conditions and potential stresses. By measuring the coating’s ability to resist cracking, chipping, or delamination upon impact, manufacturers can ensure that the powder coating meets or exceeds performance standards, providing valuable insights into the coating’s overall robustness and protective qualities in various applications.

Impact Resistance Test for Paint

The impact resistance test for paint assesses the coating’s ability to withstand mechanical stress and prevent damage upon impact. This evaluation is particularly important for surfaces exposed to potential impacts or abrasions in real-world scenarios. The commonly used methods for impact resistance testing include the falling weight test and the Gardner impact test. In these tests, a specified weight or impactor is dropped onto a coated panel, and the extent of damage, such as cracking or chipping, is observed and measured. This evaluation helps manufacturers and quality control teams ensure that the paint coating meets performance standards and maintains its protective integrity in demanding environments.

Impactful testing insight! 

We like to share our expertise at Industrial Physics. For example, why not have a look at our blog on how to assess the quality of car paints.  

Standards for impact testing

Below mentioned standards are a list of the possible standards. If the required standard is not listed below please contact TQC to check if adoption of this standard is possible*:






Type of Impact






ISO 6272-1:2002

ISO 6272-2:2002

ISO 6272:1993

ASTM D 2794:2004

ASTM G14-04

Canadian Standards Association (CSA)

* Conformation to a required standard depends on the impact tester type. The combination of items can change to comply with another standard.

Special Care

Although it’s robust in design, our paint impact tester is a precision engineered instrument…so keep it safe from knocks and drops! Here’s some simple advice on how to keep it in the best condition possible for years to come:  

Always clean the paint impact testing device after use with a soft, dry cloth 

Never use abrasive cleaning methods such as wire brushes, abrasive paper or aggressive cleaning agents.  

Safety precautions  

Keep fingers and other body parts clear when performing a test. 

Standard ASTM D2794 Impact Test

ASTM D2794 is a global ASTM international standard test method to measure the resistance of organic coatings to the effects of rapid impact deformation.  

Before samples are tested to ASTM D2794 they typically go through an accelerated aging treatment such as ASTM G154, which replicates sun exposure and heat aging. 

The ASTM D2794 standard is particularly helpful for people who need to estimate the impact resistance of organic coatings as well as the substrate they’re applied to.

Materials: Aluminum, Inks and Coatings, Metals, Steel

Type: indirect impact tester

Content: base plate assembly, guide tube, release collar,
