Prescott Instruments Tensile Testers are high precision models used to evaluate the tensile properties of specimens such as plastic and rubber. With a maximum force of either 5kN or 10kN and a long length extension of up to 1200mm, they are capable of characterising elastomeric materials across a wide range of loads.
Tensile testers are an essential laboratory instrument that accurately measures the elastomeric characteristics of a range of materials. Key results include maximum breaking force and extension, yield force, stress-stress diagrams and E-modulus curves. These parameters play a key role in determining material performance and long-term durability.
Used as a standalone instrument or in conjunction with a PC, it is possible to monitor force and extension in real-time using the LCD monitor or use the USB interface to export data. An in-built Windows software package is also included to easily review results and print basic test reports.
Using Universal Instruments, test data can also be exported and combined with additional laboratory instrument data into a single electronic process. Used in conjunction with Labline and FlexiReports, users can effectively handle laboratory data within a single management console and create bespoke reports that include results from multiple instruments.
