Tear Strength Testing

Understand your sample’s resistance with tear testing

How much resistance would it take to tear your sample apart? Are you confident that your materials will be able to withstand the pressures they’re likely to face? Be certain that you know exactly how a sample will react, with the best tear testing machines from Industrial Physics.

Whatever the materials you work with – from fabrics, films and rubber to woven composite materials – we have the technology to put them to the test.

Tear strength testing essentials

Our specialist brand United Testing Systems offers a versatile test frame capable of testing the tear strength of a wide range of materials, alongside many other advanced testing capabilities. Watch our short overview video for a quick guide.

Tear strength testing essentials

Typically, you test your materials to meet stringent international standards and the thickness of the sample is also factored in. The result is expressed as force/thickness.

To get the accurate and repeatable results you need, precision speed control, loadcells, and proper sample preparation is critical. We make a wide variety of equipment that will help you to perform tear tests – including specialized grips, fixtures and die cutters for proper sample preparation.

Tear strength testing to international standards

Made by our specialist brand United Testing Machines, our materials testing brand with 50 years’ experience, our tear testers deliver accurate results, every time. We understand that your industry may have specific testing standards for certain materials, that’s why our tear testing solutions are designed to cater to a wide range of international testing standards, including:

  • ASTM D1004 – Standard Test Method for Tear Resistance (Graves Tear) of Plastic Film and Sheeting
  • ASTM D1938 – Standard Test Method for Tear-Propagation Resistance (Trouser Tear) of Plastic Film and Thin Sheeting by a Single-Tear Method
  • ASTM D2261 – Standard Test Method for Tearing Strength of Fabrics by the Tongue (Single Rip) Procedure (Constant-Rate-of-Extension Tensile Testing Machine)
  • ASTM D2582 – Standard Test Method for Puncture-Propagation Tear Resistance of Plastic Film and Thin Sheeting
  • ASTM D5587 – Standard Test Method for Tearing Strength of Fabrics by Trapezoid Procedure
  • ASTM D5884 – Standard Test Method for Determining Tearing Strength of Internally Reinforced Geomembranes
  • ASTM D624 – Standard Test Method for Tear Strength of Conventional Vulcanized Rubber and Thermoplastic Elastomers
