Modern day consumers expect their garments to withstand the pressures of daily life, and how a fabric reacts to pressure is even more important when it performs a crucial role, such as medical textiles, parachute fabrics and mosquito nets.

Bursting strength testing is applying pressure to a sample in all directions to a fabric using air pressure and a rubber diaphragm. This webinar will explore the test and key issues around this important area of testing.

What you'll learn in this webinar:

  • What is burst strength testing and why do we do it?
  • What equipment is required and which diaphragm should you use?
  • Demonstrating burst strength testing on different materials, including textiles, medical materials and non-wovens
  • Tips & advice for testing bursting strength
