Now that’s a test of strength!!

MOR Bars are a staple in this industry and our machining of them has almost single handedly led to much broader relationships with some of the nation’s leading ceramic producers. Engineers and buyers alike respect and appreciate the Bomas difference in any Bomas controlled project; simple or complex.

Testing MOR Bars

This photo illustrates how MOR bars are broken for material strength. MOR = Modulus of Rupture. This is a Standard Test Method for Flexural Strength of Advanced Ceramics.

This illustration shows a 4-point test. As you can see, there are 4 contact points on the bar. There is also a 3-point test method.
