Film Resilience and Burst strength

Resilience is an often-overlooked attribute of films, tape stock, and backings. Typically films are tested with a tensile test and perhaps a puncture test. While those tests can easily be conducted with the TA.XTPlus Texture Analyzer, the instrument also provides an excellent tool for examining the resilience and springiness of film-like products. This study identifies how the instrument can be used with the TA-108s Film/Gel Extensibility Fixture and the TA-8A 1/8” diameter stainless steel ball probe (both depicted below right) to calculate resilience, springiness, elasticity and burst strength.
