There is a critical need for tear resistance in several industries ranging from paper to plastic. A sample material is tested for its resistance to tear. This involves the speed of the tearing process. For example, the Paper Tearing Resistance Tester is used often in the paper and packaging industry.
The material type
When a tear generates, the faster or slower it tears, shows its ability to resist. The measurement is important for durability of the paper. The same is also used throughout the rubber industry. A reputed manufacturer and supply will use high-grade material to make the tester.
Some of the wide ranges of testers include the following:
There are many solutions that are offered by suppliers by the test type, product or the use of material or by industry standards. If the test type is used, then it covers adhesion, bending, friction, bonding, breakage, crushing, durability, flexibility, tear strength and toughness. The product or material type gives the solutions for testing packaging, rubber, textile or medical device, spring or metal, wood or electronic and even cosmetic. Solutions adhere to international standards that each industry follows. The standards that involve the paper industry include ASTM, British Standards Institute, ISO, European committee for standardization and TAPPI and International Electrotechnical Commission.
Description of the testers for paper and packaging industry
The quadrant scale is used for measuring the GSM (basic weight of the paper) and other sheet materials. They are weighed via small test sample to determine the results. The radius of this scale is 30 cm. The dimensions range from 0-125, 0-250, 0-350, 0-1000, 20 x 20, 40 x 25 all in cms. It is useful for the paper and the packaging industry worldwide.
The digital grammage scale too is used mainly in the paper and packaging sectors. It measures the base weight GSM of the paper. It has a panel or a screen that displays the unit of measure.
The tensile strength tester is also invaluable for these two sectors. It can determine the breakage point of paper, board, metal or foil. It is also used in the textile and the plastic industry.
