ASTM-D5035 – Standard Test Method for Breaking Force and Elongation of Textile Fabrics (Strip Method)
This test method covers raveled strip and cut strip test procedures for determining the breaking force and elongation of most textile fabrics. Provision is made for wet testing.
1.1.1 The raveled strip test is applicable to woven fabrics while the cut strip test is applicable to nonwoven fabrics, felted fabrics, and dipped or coated fabrics.
1.2 This test method is not recommended for knitted fabrics or for other textile fabrics which have high stretch (more than 11 %).
NOTE 1: For the determination of the breaking force and elongation of textile fabrics using the grab test and modified grab test procedures, refer to Test Method D5034.
NOTE 2: For determination of the breaking force and elongation of some specific types of fabrics which use the strip test, refer to Specifications D579 and D580.KeywordsBreaking Strength – Deformation – Elongation – Fabrics – Strip Tensile Test – Tensile Strength – Tensile Test – Textile Fabrics
