The GAAARD Protection integral supportive pad has been subjected to extensive testing both for normal application and at varying temperatures.
The pad has also been repeatedly washed at temperatures ranging between 40 degrees celsius and 60 degrees celsius. 6 washes weekly over a period of 3 months, 96 washes in total with no deformation.
TESTING LOG INFORMATION:
GAAARD PROTECTION PAD TESTING LOG 1 See result sample
GAAARD PROTECTION PAD TESTING LOG 2 See result sample
GAAARD PROTECTION PAD TESTING LOG 3
Pad compressed over its length on a hydraulic pressbrake with pre-programmed force set to 198 Kilo Newtons on the CNC control. Again the profile of the tool caused cracking due to the shearing effect during the compression of the pad.
198Kn equates to 20 ton force.
GAAARD PROTECTION PAD TESTING LOG 4
Pad compression over it's entirety by driving a 25 ton mass BOSS forklift over the whole of the pad. The profile being larger than the pad eliminated the cracking effect and has demonstrated that the Hooke's Law of Elasticity's Elastic limit in this case has not been exceeded therefore the pad has immediately returned to it's original form.
