Our designers work closely with our customers and our textile technologists in a working laboratory to produce an intuitive touchscreen interface to make the Martindale easy to control.
The familiar feel of a touchscreen similar to devices used in everyday life makes the different features easy to access, navigation quick and simple, ensuring operators become experts instantly.

TruBurst Pneumatic Bursting Strength Tester with TestWise™ software and a range of bursting strength and fatigue tests suitable for knitted textiles (including elastane), medical textiles, non-wovens, paper and plastics.
Variety of applications
Test a variety of materials including textiles, nonwovens, plastic bags, food packaging, tissues, tin foil and medical products. A specimen is clamped over a diaphragm which is expanded to the point of rupture, or where the dome is filled. TruBurst can test bursting strength to a maximum of 1000 kPa when 10 bar of pressure is supplied and, with TestWise Pro, perform cyclic testing for fatigue evaluation.
Traditional knitted products: e.g., T-Shirts, casual/sportswear with and without Lycra.
Nonwoven: e.g., wet wipes, cleaning clothes such as J-Cloths.
Nonwovens - knee/elbow supports.
Mosquito nets for WHO (World Health Organisation) Technical textiles: e.g., surgical gowns/masks.
Sacks and various plastic products.
Paper and other materials
Non-contact laser distension measurement for accuracy and repeatability of test results.
Five interchangeable domes
With software auto recognition of the dome size. Dome and diaphragm changing is tool-free for faster testing and less downtime.
Pre-programmed standards testing
The TruBurst is a software-controlled instrument, using TestWise Touch or Pro, and developed with programmed test routines to address a wide range of international and proprietary standards, including:
Adidas® Test Method 4.09
