The Horizontal Tensile Tester is used for the determination of tensile properties of paper, board and tissue paper: tensile strength, stretch at rupture and TEA (tensile energy absorption) during quality control and R&D.
The new and modern design associated to the use of light and resistant materials, offers a friendly, ergonomic and secure operation to the user.
The exclusive interactive and intuitive software offers options to three complete tests and a basic test. The software enables 3 specific programs with option for statistical and respective resistances calculation, according to the applicable technical standards.
During the test, the wide LCD display shows a graphic of the evolution of the test and after its conclusion indicates automatically the maximum force and elongation of the test piece.

About the horizontal tensile test for Paper, board & tissue paper
This test method describes the procedure, using constant-rate-of-elongation equipment, for determining four tensile breaking properties of paper and paperboard: tensile strength, stretch, tensile energy absorption, and tensile stiffness.
This procedure is applicable to all types of paper and paperboard within the limitations of the instruments used, whether the instruments perform horizontal or vertical tests or whether they are manually operated or computer controlled. It is also applicable to handsheets, with modifications, as specified in TAPPI T 220 “Physical Testing of Pulp Handsheets.” It does not apply to combined corrugated board.
Uses of Tensile Testing
Tensile strength is indicative of the strength derived from factors such as fiber strength, fiber length, and bonding. It may be used to deduce information about these factors, especially when used as a tensile strength index. For quality control purposes, tensile strength has been used as an indication of the serviceability of many papers which are subjected to a simple and direct tensile stress. Tensile strength can also be used as an indication of the potential resistance to web breaking of papers such as printing papers during printing on a web fed press or other web fed converting operations. When evaluating the tensile strength, the stretch and the tensile energy absorption for these parameters can be of equal or greater importance in predicting the performance of paper, especially when that paper is subjected to an uneven stress such as gummed tape, or a dynamic stress such as when a sack full of granular material is dropped.
