Tensile Testing of Plastic Strapping Material
The challenge of testing this material is:
- Gripping specimens
- Gripping specimens - Due to its high strength and thin profile, the appropriate gripping solution is the biggest challenge for testing plastic strapping. The gripping solution must be able to provide a consistent gripping force. Instron’s Custom Solution Group designed CP110544 30kN pneumatic side acting grip with jaw faces specifically designed for plastic strapping proved to be a successful gripping solution.
