Bend Test

Sonaspection has produced a range of bend test samples that can show a student or technician the impact welded defects can have on the structural integrity of a welded joint. We supply them in batches of 5 bars (12mm x 10mm x 200mm long) Each bar has 1 defect in it.

Bar 1 LoSWF
Bar 2 Slag
Bar 3 Clear
Bar 4 LoRF
Bar 5 Toe Crack

Each bar is bend unlit the weld starts to fail and the defect is exposed.
