Evaluate the tear strength of plastic films with Presto tearing strength tester

When it comes to packaging your material efficiently, there are a lot of options you will get that will help you to deliver your products efficiently to the users. Thus, to make sure that the right products are delivered to your customers, it is very important for you to stabilize the products efficiently and create tightly secured loads.

Stretch film is a low-density polyethylene plastic film that is used to fasten, package, and stabilize items. The film is pulled and stretched around the items during application to generate firmly fastened loads. Stretch film is available in a wide range of widths, thicknesses, and colors to suit a number of purposes. Testing these films efficiently will help you to deliver your products without causing any errors. Thus, with the use of the Presto tearing strength tester it will be easy for you to determine the tearing strength of fabrics, plastic films, and similar materials. This testing instrument will help you to rupture the pre-slit sample under controlled test conditions.

Here in this article, we are going to discuss the role of tearing strength tester in the packaging industry. We will also discuss how this Elmendorf tearing strength tester plays a significant role in measuring the internal tearing resistance of the package.

Accurately inspect the tearing strength of stretch films with the Presto tearing strength tester

The stretch films are stretched during different applications which will lead to more internal stress and causes error in delivering accurate products to the customers. Thus, with the use of the Presto tearing strength tester, it will be easy for you to test the tearing strength of these materials with ease.

This lab testing instrument will work on the principle of measuring the internal tearing resistance of the force perpendicular to the plane of the plastic films when sudden force is applied to it. This will help you to deliver error-free products to your customers.

This testing instrument consists of a pendulum carrying a clamp that is in alignment with a fixed clamp. The pendulum is in raised, starting position with maximum potential energy. The tear force is computed from scale reading and pendulum capacity. The test involves measuring the loss in the potential energy of the pendulum equating to the work done in tearing the test specimen. Whenever you are going to conduct a tearing strength test, then you need to take care of some factors.

Below we have listed the features and technical specifications of this lab testing equipment.
