One of the most common tests in the plastic industry is the notched Izod impact test as specified by ASTM D 256 Standard Test Method for Determining the Izod Pendulum Impact Resistance of Plastics.
This test fixes one end of a notched specimen in a cantilever position using a vice. A striker on the arm of a pendulum or similar energy carrier then strikes the sample. The energy absorbed by the specimen in the breaking process is known as the breaking energy.
The breaking energy can be converted into an indication of a materials impact resistance using such units as foot-pounds or joules. While the use of the data generated from a test for designing a part is not necessarily recommended, it still provides reasonable service as a quality control tool.
