Gmax testing in Lompoc, California using a F355 A-Missile
Using our specialist F355 A-Missile, Surface Performance trained technicians carry out gmax testing in Lompoc, California to ASTM test method F355.
The A-Missile is a 20lb, cylindrical weight which is dropped from 24inches across 10 testing locations on the field. The integrated accelerometer measures the g-forces exerted on the missile upon impact. This shows the impact attenuation of the surface and, in turn measures the impact a player would be subject to upon colliding with the surface. If this force is too high (+200g’s) then ASTM would deem the surface unfit for use.
