Description of Tests

  1. Breaking Strength of Fabrics (Grab Method: CAN/GSB-4.2 Method 9.2-M90). A 4″ wide x 6″ tall specimen of fabric is held between 2 vertical clamps. Tension is applied so that rupture of the specimen occurs within 20 seconds. This test is similar to ISO 5082:1982.
  2. Breaking Strength of Yarns (Single Strand Method: CAN/GSB-4.2 Method 9.4-M91). A single strand of yarn is held between 2 clamps. Tension is applied so that rupture of the specimen occurs within a specified interval of time.
  3. Burst Strength (Diaphragm Pressure Test: CAN/GSB-4.2 Method 11.1-94). A fixed area of fabric is subjected to pressure on one side through a diaphragm, and the pressure is gradually increased until the fabric is ruptured. This test is technically equivalent to ASTM D 3786-87.
  4. Wounded Burst Strength (Diaphragm Pressure Test: CAN/GSB-4.2 Method 11.1-94). Same as previous except a 12.5 mm cut is made to the test area.
