Test Method

Impact Resistance of Ceramic Tiles - Test Method - BS EN ISO 10545-5:1998


Ceramic tiles. Determination of impact resistance by measurement of coefficient of restitution.


Impact resistance is determined by measuring the coefficient of restitution by dropping a steel ball from a fixed height onto the test specimen and measuring the height of rebound.

It is calculated from relative velocity of departure divided by the relative velocity of approach.
