Tearing Resistance Tester (UEC-1008 A)

This instrument is used for measuring the resistance against tearing of paper, board, plastic films and other similar materials. An initial cut is made in a set of test piece, which are then torn through a given distance.  The work done in the test piece is measured as the loss in potential energy of a pendulum which is free to swing on it horizontal axis provided with single pendulum.  A calibrated scale indicates the mean tearing force.   Optional :  

  • Interchangeable pendulum for different range.
  • 0-2000 mN. (Extra Light)  
  • 0-8000 mN.  (Light, A)
  • 0-16000 mN. (Medium, B) 
  • 0-32000 mN. (Heavy, C) 
  • Tearing sample cutter. 
  • Set of calibration weights.
