What Is Elmendorf Tear Tester?
Elmendorf Tear Tester is designed to test the fabric tear strength (intensity) of the instrument, the determination of impact pendulum method tear strength, also known as the pendulum or drop weight tear strength tester, There have manual electronic tear strength tester, digital Elmendorf tear strength tester etc
Elmendorf Tear Tester is widely used in production of avulsion to finishing the durability of the product, such as resin, additives or paint finishing of fabric, yarn by deformation capacity decreases, and using tear strength than the tensile breaking strength can reflect more the fastness of change after the textile finishing. Many industrial fabrics also regard tear strength as one of the important items of product quality inspection. The tearing property of fabric is very important to the durability of fabric.
Today we will tell you how to the test about Elmendorf Tear Tester.
- 1. TESTING EQUIPMENT
1.1 YG033B ELMENDORF TEARING TESTER (128N)
1.2 CUTTER OR SCISSOR FOR SAMPLE

- 2. SAMPLING AND TEST PROCESS
2.1 REFERENCE STANDARD: ISO13937-1
2.2 PREPARE SAMPLE
FIGURE 2 SAMPLE SIZE
YG033B equipped with a standard sample template (stainless steel), it make sampling conveniently.
FIGURE 3 SAMPLE TEMPLATE
From the sample, which customer sent to us, we found there were two type of plastic sheet, one marked SUNCAP 500, the other marked ECONOWRAP + PE FOIL.
FIGURE 4 SAMPLES
As per ISO13937-1 and sample size which you sent to us, we took 5 samples from SUNCAP 500 (2 warp-wise, 3 weft-wise), 6 samples from ECONOWRAP + PE FOIL (2 warp-wise, 4 weft-wise).
2.3 TEST PROCEDURE

3.1 FOR SUNCAP 500
FIGURE 7 SAMPLE AFTER TESTING
|TEAR FORCE (N)||TEARING BEHAVIOR||SAMPLING DIRECTION|
3.2 FOR ECONOWRAP + PE FOIL
FIGURE 8 SAMPLE AFTER TESTING
|SAMPLE NO.||TEAR FORCE (N)||TEARING BEHAVIOR||SAMPLING DIRECTION|
4.1 AS PER ISO13937-1, ALL SAMPLES SHOULD BE CONDITIONED IN A CONSTANT TEMPERATURE AND HUMIDITY CHAMBER, BUT TO SAVE TIME, WE DO NOT CONDITION ANY SAMPLES, SO THE FORCE VALUE MAY NOT BE VERY ACCURATE.
4.2 FOR SAMPLE SUNCAP 500, THERE IS NO OBVIOUS DIFFERENCE OF TEST RESULT BETWEEN DIFFERENT SAMPLING DIRECTIONS. BUT FOR SAMPLE
4.3 ECONOWRAP + PE FOIL, FORCE OF WEFT-WISE IS BIGGER THAN THE WARP-WISE.
4.4 FROM THE TEST RESULT ABOVE, YG033B IS A SUITABLE MACHINE TO TEST YOUR PRODUCTS.
