Tensile strength test
A tensile strength test is a mechanical test performed on packaging materials to determine the maximum load that can be applied to a material before it ruptures or tears. In essence it is a 'pulling' test used to measure the strength of paper, board and plastics. The material will show elastic behaviour up to a certain point and then rupture. The test can be adapted to different needs - it can be used to measure the strength or elongation of a material and its tearing resistance, as well as the force required to separate a seal.
This is one of a suite of packaging strength methods available from Campden BRI related to transit testing or distribution chain testing.
