Mecmesin testers are ideally suited to fabric and textile testing, to ensure quality performance, durability and safety conformance:

  • Pull-off strength of buttons, fasteners and attachments from garments
  • Tensile strength of yarns
  • Tear strength of woven and non-woven fabrics
  • Strength of seams or welds
  • Yarn slippage in sewn seams
  • Burst strength of fabrics
  • Stiffness of fabrics
  • Puncture resistance
  • Stretch and elongation

Tests are applied to yarns, woven and non-woven fabrics, high-performance fabrics for hazardous environments, protective garments, and to specialist geotextiles.

Each of these may be joined or secured by seams, adhesive or sewn, and have attachments for securing or fastening.

Additional quality specifications and safety standards will apply to ensure adornments cannot come loose or themselves become a hazard.

Mecmesin testers can apply the test methods required by international and industry standards, driven by our powerful Emperor™ control and analysis software.
