Instrument/Facility Name: ICAR-Central Institute for Research on Cotton Technology (ICARCIRCOT), Adenwala Road, Matunga, Mumbai 400019
Make                                   : KATO TECH CO. LTD, JAPAN
Model                                  : KES-FB1-A Tensile and Shear Tester
Specification   :Used to measure low stress shear and tensile properties of fabrics

Click to ViewTensile deformation rate: 0.05 to 0.5 mm/sec (0.05 mm/sec intervals)Shear deformation rate: ConstantSpecimen size: 20 cm × 20 cm (standard)Thickness: 2 mm (max.)

  Working Principles
Click to ViewThe KES-FB1-A Tensile and Shear Tester analyzes hand movements—referred to as “tensile” and “shear”—performed by artisans and professionals when judging a fabric’s texture. This device performs these movements mechanically, making it possible to obtain objective numerical data.

  Applications
  User Instructions
Obtainable data includes tensile/shear rigidity, tensile energy, elongation rates, and recoverability for such targets as cloth, paper, non-woven fabric, and film. Tensile and shear characteristic data is useful for determining stiffness and anti-drape stiffness. These properties often influence form stability and the tendency for wrinkles.
