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.

Amphibio has been using the Mecmesin Multitest 2.5i to assess the mechanical properties of single fibres, yarns and textiles made of various materials for their suitability in the sportswear and performance textiles market. We needed equipment that would be able to provide us with repeatable and reliable results whilst being easy to use. By using this equipment, we have been able to make key decisions going forward in our material development by determining yarns and fibres with the most suitable mechanical properties. The grips recommended to us as well as the software interface make testing efficient and easy, allowing us to obtain rapid results. Overall, we are extremely happy with the service offered by Mecmesin, particularly because they were able to accommodate our needs during difficult COVID times and were also able to offer us our desired equipment rental agreement period which fit with our budget.

ASTM D3217 Breaking Tenacity test of a single fiber in a knot configuration.
“Only measuring up to a few Newtons of force with an AFG 2500 N was not enabling us to proceed with our investigation and Mecmesin kindly lent us a more sensitive AFG 10N which instantaneously improved the quality of data we were collecting.”

This test system is perfectly suited to our needs, giving us the flexibility we require to perform multiple tests with the certainty of obtaining reliable, accurate results. Undertaking these quality measurements in-house means we are also saving significant costs, as we no longer require the services of external test laboratories.

We use the MultiTest-x regularly, approximately 40 hours every week. It continues to be reliable and saves us money by enabling us to tests in-house. Mecmesin were able to offer advice regarding fixtures and designed an ideal solution for our testing needs, which remained competitively priced.
