The Burst Tester is used as a multi-directional test to identify failure in the direction showing least resistance. This test shows the physical strength and fiber bond. Different models are available for paper, board or textile. This instrument is also used for other applications such as plastic, rubber, aluminum and felts. The sample is pneumatically clamped, the rubber membrane is pushed upwards by hydraulics. The force at fracture is recorded.
