Product Info

Tearing Strength Tester manufacturers and suppliers provide the best precision testing instrument for the industrial laboratories that are indulged in testing the strength of materials such as textiles, plastic films, paper and so forth. The materials like fabrics, plastic films, rubber sheets and many more are used for many different purposes in different industries.






    Many times, these materials need to bear extensive loads and forces that can damage them to a great extent. This is why it is essential to test the strength of these materials to determine the amount of force that they can bear without facing any damage or failure. This testing ensures that the materials will be able to bear the forces that are levied on them during usage. The tearing strength tester gives accurate data of testing for such materials.

    Pacorr is one of the most prominent tearing strength tester manufacturers and suppliers that offer the most precise testing instrument to the industries. In industries, the materials such as textiles, plastic films etc. are used for various purposes. When these materials are used in industries, they are subjected to extreme shearing forces that can tear them easily if they are not strong enough. Plastic films are used for packaging of different products. Textiles are used for products such as packaging, making protective coverings, parachutes and so forth. The manufacturers of such materials need to ensure that they manufacture a product that is strong enough to bear shearing forces during usage. In order to ensure high strength of the materials, the manufacturers need to test the materials before usage. The tearing strength tester is the most apt testing instrument that can be used for testing the tearing strength of the materials with great accuracy and precision.

    For commencing the test, the specimen of the material to be tested is clamped to the clamps given with the instrument. The instrument comes with a blade which is fixed to a pendulum. To test the tearing strength of the fabrics and materials, it is essential that the force applied on the specimen is applied in the direction perpendicular to the plane of the specimen. The pendulum is in alignment with the fixed clamp to which the specimen is fixed. The pendulum is raised to the maximum possible height to gain the maximum potential energy. The pendulum is released to apply the tearing force to the specimen. The force applied on the specimen is computed with the help of readings on the scale provided with the instrument. The force is also calculated with the pendulum capacity also.

    The test is also performed to determine the average force required top propagate the slit that is already present in the fabric through its length. The test involves measuring the loss of potential energy from the pendulum for the work done for tearing the test specimen.
    The instrument is designed according to the international standards such as ASTM D1424-09, ASTM D1776 to ensure the provision of most accurate testing data to the industries.
