Tear Strength Testing
How much resistance would it take to tear your material sample apart? Find out with the best tear testing machines from Industrial Physics.
Made by United Testing machines, our specialist materials testing business with 50 years’ experience, our tear testers deliver accurate results, every time.
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.
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.
