Tensile testing is one of the most widely used physical tests for textiles and other materials, so we’ve put together a useful guide to Tensile Testing to help you achieve accurate and repeatable results.
By measuring the force required to elongate a specimen to breaking point, the textile properties can be determined that will allow designers and quality managers to predict how fibres, yarns and fabrics will behave in their intended end-use.
A big part of our development process for any product we make involves our Textile Technologists. The Titan10 Universal Strength Tester has recently launched, and to get to this point in the development of the product our Technologists have been doing months of strength testing work.
With this in mind, we asked them for some do’s and don’ts for this field of testing. Using their years of laboratory experience, and looking through frequently asked questions to our Applications Support KnowledgeHub, they have a compiled a list of common mistakes and best practices for strength testing.
