Tests within D include puncture, seam strength, and tear tests.

Blocking resistance is tested by folding a piece of fabric sample a couple of times and then placing it in between two glass plates. Testing Procedure Clamp the specialized fixture device in the upper clamp of the test machine and adjust the machine to compensate for its weight. Call our fixture engineers today and they can provide you with a specialized fixture just for this test.

Test Procedure First you should mount the test specimen in the ring clamp. Seam Strength shall be the median of all the individual results. Next impinge the specimen on the needles. D Adhesion of Coating to Fabric This test determines the adhesion of coating of the coated fabric.

ASTM D751 Coated Fabrics Rainwear Test Equipment

Tests for the puncture strength of a sheet specimen Load rating and dimensions made to order. Testing Procedure First clamp the separated portions of your sample in the jaws so that movement of the test machine will separate the coating from the backing.

Testing Procedure First place the specimen symmetrically in the jaws of the grips with the seam centered between the jaws. Preparing the Specimens Ten specimens should be cut with the smallest dimension at least Our test engineers are experienced with testing to ASTM D and can help guide you through the testing process.

ASTM D – Coated Fabrics

The strength of the coating on the fabric is measured by pretensioning the sample and then testing it using one of the above hydrostatic methods. This test should be performed at the same time as breaking strength with the same specimens.


Preparing the Specimens Five specimens should be cut axtm the smallest dimension at least Forces up to 10 kN 2, lbf Low force tabletop systems Modular series of five frame options with adjustable test space Affordable testing option for tension, compression, bend, peel and much more. Next run the test machine so that it separates the coating from the backing with a uniform speed of.

This test determines the puncture resistance of the coated fabric. The adhesion test is used when the coating is stronger than the adhesive that binds it to the fabric. Accelerated Heat Aging E751 Method.

Satm tests are usually performed in rapid sequences and therefore it may be advantageous to use pneumatic grips, especially if the machine is running for several hours per day.

Tearing strength can be determined by two methods: We are confident that we have what you are looking for. Call our engineers today for help testing to ASTM D and for help choosing the best test equipment. The vise grip zstm should be 1×3″ HxW. Preparing the Specimens Gather two sets of 5 specimens each for longitudinal and transverse breaking strength. Finally record the average force necessary to tear the fabric Accessories Required d7511 Tack-Tear Resistance You will need a specialized tack-tear resistance fixture shown in Figure 4 of the standard official dd751.

Types of coatings that are commonly used include plastic material as well as teflon PTFE. Elongation The elongation is typically measured by the crosshead of the UTM, however extensometers can be used to acquire direct strain data from the specimen. The other method, the Tongue Tear Method is more common and requires a universal testing machine. Tack-Tear Resistance The Tack-Tear test fixture is described in scant detail in the official publication. Use the same specimens as for breaking strength.


D Seam Strength This test is used to determine compare the seam strength with the strength of the coated fabric.

Preparing the Specimens for the Tongue Tear Method Five specimens from each atm the warp and filling directions should be tested. A weight is placed on top of the glass plates to maintain even pressure. Blocking Resistance at Elevated Temperatures.

Record the force necessary for the sample to slip the seam or rupture the fabric.

Strength of Coating The strength of the coating on the fabric is measured by pretensioning the sample and then testing c751 using one of the above hydrostatic methods. Preparing the Specimens Create two sets of five specimens each for warp and filling tack-tear strength. Crack resistance is tested at low temperature by means of a chilling chamber. Have a question about conducting the test for f751 standard? You can pair these universal tester with our XyLive Software needed for adhesion and tear tests in this standard.

Wicking of Coated Cloth Small wick sized samples are put into a beaker with a water soluble dye. D Puncture Resistance This test determines the puncture resistance of the coated fabric.

The apparatus is then pulled apart and tearing occurs along where the needles were gripped into the sample. This test is different than the bursting strength test in that you operate the test machine at a faster rate and use a sharp plunger shaped fixture to puncture the fabric.
