    Two-dimensional brittle fragmentation near the fragmentation-critical point was investigated. The behavior of higher-order moments of the fragment mass distributions was also studied. The measured characteristics exponents imply that the impact fragmentation of brittle solids does not belong the the percolation transition universality class. The results show that the universality class of fragmentation transition disagreed with that of percolation.
