Environmental Stress Crack Resistance (ESCR) Testing of Plastics

What is Stress Cracking? The definition of cracking due to stress in defined in many standards. It is defined as the internal or an external crack in the plastic caused by stresses less that its short term mechanical potency. This type of cracking usually consists of brittle cracking with no ductile or little drawing of plastic material from the adjoining surface failure. Slow growth in cracks is another term used to explain stress cracking. The best form of slow crack growth is ESC...

Beesley Balance – For Accurate Yarn Count

How to check the weight of Yarn? To check the weight of a yarn, it is necessary to determine the yarn count. As per the direct system, the weight of the length of a yarn measured in units is considered as a count. For example, the weight of yarn in grams per kilometer length of yarn represents one “Tex” and the weight of yarn in grams per 9000 meters of yarn represents one “Denier”. On the other hand, as per an indirect system of yarn measurement, count is represented by a specific...
