Tensile Testing

Tensile Testing
One of the most common testing methods, tensile testing, is used to determine the behaviour of a sample while an axial stretching load is applied. These types of tests may be performed under ambient or controlled (heating or cooling) conditions to determine the tensile properties of a material.

Tensile testing is performed on a variety of materials including metals, plastics, elastomers, paper, composites, rubbers, fabrics, adhesives, films, etc.

Tensile testing is commonly used to determine the maximum load (tensile strength) that a material or a product can withstand. Tensile testing may be based on a load value or elongation value.

Common tensile testing results include:
- Maximum Load
- Deflection of Maximum Load
- Work at Maximum Load
- Stiffness
- Load at Break
- Deflection at Break
- Work at Break
- Chord Slope
- Stress
- Strain
- Young's Modulus

We provide force measurement instruments and materials testing machines for tensile testing.
