Intertek offers Hydraulic Composite Compression Fixture (HCCF) testing to the composite industry.
The HCCF is widely accepted in Europe and is quickly becoming top-of-mind across US and Canada for compression testing of Carbon Fiber Reinforced and Glass Fiber Reinforced Polymer Matrix Composites.
HCCF reduces compression test set up variants:
- Eliminates flexure for a more constant deformation rate
- Uniformly applied gripping force for dependable and reproducible specimen gripping
- Minimized frictional forces
