STRETCH AND RECOVERY TESTER
The FlexiFrame is an accurate, standardised and calibrate fixture that will help you to test the stretch, growth and recovery properties of knitted and woven fabrics. It is a quicker and flexible alternative to a tensile tester which could be prohibitive due to time, with each specimen typically requiring several hours.
DIMENSIONAL STABILITY RULER
The FlexiFrame comes complete with a dimensional stability ruler, to enable the user to measure the stretch and recovery in both distance and percentage. This cuts down on time to calculate percentagesIt and reduces user error, contributing to the accuracy of the FlexiFrame instrument.
OPTIONS TO SUIT YOU
The FlexiFrame can be purchased as either a portable 6 station instrument on wheels, or as multiples of 3 stations mounted on the wall. Simply choose the best option for your laboratory and testing requirements.
Each station has an independent timer, which can be used in position or taken away from the instrument, which allows the user to complete other tasks. This makes the FlexiFrame efficient and ensures the user has reduced downtime.
A synthetic filament or spun yarn which will stretch under tension and recover quickly upon release.
Stretch Woven Fabric
A woven fabric that is capable of ?20% stretch and recovers almost fully after stretching.
Usually expressed as a percentage, it is the increase in length of a specimen after tension is applied.
Usually expressed as a percentage, it is the difference in length of a specimen before and after tension is applied and subsequently removed.
Usually expressed as a percentage, it is fabric growth recovered after tension or extension has been applied, measured at specified intervals.
