Tearing resistance of paper

This method determines the out of plane tearing resistance of paper or boards of low grammage with the Elmendorf method. The result is given in newtons (N). The price includes measurement in both machine and cross direction. In the test, an initial cut is made on the test specimen. This cut is then torn for a given distance using a pendulum. The work required to tar the test piece is measured and the mean tearing force is calculated.
