Paper & Package Testing Machines

Tear Resistance Tester


The equipment measures the Tear Force required to tear samples of paper, board, plastic films and other similar materials. The equipment is designed to directly read gF (Tear Force) per one piece. The Tear Force thus obtained can be converted into Tear Energy, Tear Index or Tear Factor by applying appropriate formula. The machine incorporates:

  • Incision Knife of hardened and ground alloy steel.
  • Precision Clamps with controlled jaws, made of aluminum.
  • Extra light, low friction pointer with friction lining of textile material.
  • Supplied with template to cut 63 mm x 63 mm specimen.

The dial of the instrument has three scales marked on it:

A scale: 0-100 gF (when using 16 pieces)
B scale: 0-200 gF (when using 8 pieces)
C scale: 0-400 gF (when using 4 pieces)
Depending on the number of pieces used for tearing, readings on the appropriate scale should be taken.
