Category: Skid Testers

The Pendulum is based on the Izod Principle: a Pendulum consisting of a tubular arm rotates about a spindle attached to a vertical pillar. At the end of the tubular arm a head of constant mass is fitted with a rubber slider.

To perform a test using a Portable Skid Resistance Tester (British Pendulum Test), a Rubber Slider with a specific hardness, resilience and size must first be fitted to the foot of the pendulum.
