Tearing resistance of paper

This method determines the tearing resistance of low-grammage paper or board with the Elmendorf method. During 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 tear the test piece is measured, and the mean tearing force is calculated. The result is given in newtons (N). The price includes measurements in both machine and cross direction.
