Tear Resistance Testing

Posted on July 12, 2016

Tear resistance testing can be found in plastic film, paper and textile industries. Tear resistance is the measurement of a sample’s ability to resist tearing.

Tear resistance can be impacted considerably by the speed of the test, e.g. test speed used in generate the tear. Tear propagation resistance for the purpose of acceptance testing is common with materials such as paper and rubber. Tear resistance in textiles involves the load required to propagate a single “rip-tongue” type of tear (tear coming from a cut).
