84-96 'ZDT' Z-Direction Tensile Strength Tester

Complete digital testing system for Z-Directional 'ZDT' testing per TAPPI T541, ISO 15754 and related specifications.







There are several methods developed to measure internal bond strength or delamination strength of paper and board. The most common are the Scott type internal bond strength which is a dynamic impact test based on the energy stored when a pendulum is released. A second method is the Z-directional tensile strength. ZDT measures the tensile strength of a specimen which is sandwiched and compressed between two adhesive tapes. After compression, the specimen is separated to determine the maximum force at rupture.
