Tensile strength

A measure of how much a material stretches and then breaks under tension. Can be performed in different directions across the paper. Can be performed wet or dry.

FAQ
Tensile strength is a measure of how much a material stretches and then breaks under tension. It can be performed in different directions across the paper (Can be performed wet or dry).
Apply an ever-increasing weight to a test sample until the point of failure. This will enforce a strain curve that will show how materials act throughout a tensile test.
Tensile Strength Dry: The tensile strength is the maximum force that a paper filter will withstand before braking. In the test strips of a certain length and width (e.g. 15mm x 180mm) which were subjected to an increasing vertical load.

Tensile Strength Wet: After the test piece has been saturated with water, the tensile strength is tested in the same way as for dry paper.
