This testing can be performed using either a horizontal impact tester or an inclined impact tester. Both tests use a carriage that propels the test sample down a rail and into a backstop. The inclined impact tester does this with gravity while the Horizontal impact tester is powered by air or other suitable means. The equipment used must be in compliance with ASTM D880, ASTM D4003 or ISO 2244. To perform either test, the product must be centered in the proper orientation on the carriage of the impact slide, with the front surface of the product in contact with the animation showing the ISTA 6-Amazon.com-SIOC Test Block 8 and Test Block 20 inclined impact testing:
