Gurley 2-Point Bending Stiffness Tester

Motorised with a digital readout, ideally suited for flat sheet material including paper & board, non wovens, textiles and film & foils. Specialist attachment available for the testing of medical tubing such as a catheter.

The genuine Gurley bending resistance / stiffness tester is for measuring the bending resistance of a wide variety of materials including paper, paperboard, textiles, non-wovens, films, metal foils and tubing.

Fifteen different specimen sizes and a range of thicknesses up to 6mm can be tested. A complete set of augmenting weights ( 5, 25, 50 and 200 grams ) are supplied as standard to ensure a full range of bending resistances can be tested. A calibration strip is also included.

Simple to operate with a high resolution encoder registering the position of pendulum.

Testing Flat Sheets

  • All flat sheet models meet TAPPI T-543 and ASTM D6125-97
  • Selectable units: Gurley units ( milligrams ), grams, cm, mNm.
  • The clamp accommodates flat materials up to 50 mm wide and 6 mm

Testing Tubing
Using the precision tubing clamp assembly or the parallel clamp, the instrument can test rods & wires, monofilament, finished products, flat sheet materials to 6 mm thick tubing, oval, polygon or asymmetrical cross sections, single or multi-lumen to 15.5 mm OD.

Four models available for different applications:
