We went back to basics to design our Elmatear2 to create a digital tear tester which accelerates and simplifies routine tear testing. We removed every complexity and designed an instrument, which is intuitive and straightforward to operate. Sometimes referred to as a ballistic tear tester or an elmendorf tester, Elmatear2 is reliable and simple to use. Downtime between tests is minimal helping you to save time and achieve maximum throughput.
The intuitive and intelligent software does all the hard work - no need for you to do any calculations.
Quick and effective clamping using innovative rotary cam lock jaws and interchangeable jaw faces.
Foolproof operation: automatic level compensation, pendulum weight detection and visible and audible alarms.
Originally conceived for testing textiles, the instrument is extremely versatile and may be used to test nonwoven as well as paper and plastic products. The standard capacity of 64N may be doubled with the optional, heavy duty (E) Pendulum Kit. If you have an unusual application, we may be able to modify the instrument to suit.
Elmatear2 is used to test the tear strength of shirts, blouses and denim.
Elmatear2 is used to test paper, including paper bags for tear strength.
Plastic is another material that is commonly tested using Elmatear2.
I sell Elmatear2 instruments for various applications including textiles, plastics and packaging. I test samples pre-sale and carry out post-sale technical training. There are different tear tests, and I will work closely with you to understand exactly what you need, making sure that we supply the most appropriate instrument. Elmatear2 is based on the original ‘Elmendorf’ principle. Providing training is a rewarding task, as the James Heal Elmatear2 is remarkably easy to use and you will be delighted by its look and functionality.
