- Bursting

- Tearing

- Air permeability

- Water permeability

- Water vapor absorption and coefficient

- Static electricity

- Wear and abrasion (Martindale) as well as flexion

- Impact and abrasion (for sport clothes and accessories)

- Glove Cutting (according to EN-388)

- Vertical Flammability (in conformity to major ISO standards)

- Thickness

- Coating (sample preparation)

- Polymerisation (with humidity and temperature control)

- Washing and dimensional stability

- Color fastness (rubbing, sunlight, ecc)

- Moisture content & humidity

- Sample cutting and weight measurement

- PH assessment, ecc.

Furthermore, Mesdan-Lab is the exclusive distributor in the Western part of Europe of MTNW (Measurement Technology North West – USA), famous manufacturer of measuring equipment for the  Thermal  & Psychological comfort of fabrics and garments  (Sweating Guarded Hot Plate, Manikins, etc).

At the forthcoming TECHTEXTIL show in Frankfurt  (24-26 May 2011) Mesdan®  will exhibit:

·  a complete range of knotters and yarn Splicers (Jointair ® – Aquasplicer ® – Hot Jointair ®) for industrial yarns such as Carbon,  Aramids, Tyre

cord, Glass fibre, Carpet yarns, Sewing threads, yarns for Artificial grass,  etc.

· a variety of QC equipment (strength, elongation, perforation, flammability, tear, abrasion, cutting, moisture, comfort, etc).

Among the equipment on display, a highlight:

ELMATIC, fully automatic digital Elmendorf tear tester characterized by:

· Measuring range 200 - 30.000 cN for fine and heavy-duty materials (textiles, leather, paper, plastic, etc).

· Automatic pendulum identification and fully automatic execution of tear test:

1. automatic cut of the specimen

2. automatic release of the pendulum

3. automatic tear of the specimen

4  automatic measure of the tear force

5. automatic stop of the pendulum

6. automatic reposition of pendulum in the starting position

· Complete safety cover with safety lock during testing operation until pendulum swinging is terminated

· Large LCD display, PC & printer connection

· Results can be expressed in a variety of different units (N, Kg, LBS, etc)

· ELMATIC software for data storage, graphic and statistic elaboration of results

· High accuracy (0,09 degree) and  results repeatability

· In conformity with major International testing Standards

· Supplied complete with 2 Pendulums and 2 Check-weight

· High productivity (about 150 tests could be executed in 15 minutes!)
