Bally Flexing Tester TF116

4.5 (6 reviews)

Bally Flexing Tester, is designed for flexing resistance test to bending of leather and fabric. Flexometer complies with ISO 5402, ISO 32100, SATRA TM55, DIN 53351, BS-3144 ,and etc.



Bally Flexing Tester (Flexometer) is designed for flexing resistance test to bending or other types of failure at flexing creases.

The Flexometer is applicable to all flexible materials, in particular leathers, artificial leather below thickness of 3.0mm, and other coated fabrics, sheet materials, etc.

This Flexometer – determination of flex resistance by flexometer method. Fold the test piece with the specimen surface inwards, and then clamp the specimen in the upper movable clip. In contrast, the surface to be tested faces outwards and is clamped in the lower retaining clip. The movement of the upper clip caused a fold in the test piece to run along with it. In addition, examine the test piece for damage periodically.

Flexing test procedure

1 Clamp the specimen in the upper and lower jigs as required by the standard
2 Preset flexing number or flexing time
3 Start of flexing test
4 Observe the degree of damage to the specimen
5 Calculate the number of flexing

Note during the flexing test

When re-clamping the specimen, keep it as close to the original condition as possible.
When stopped, the specimen should be left in its natural relaxed state.
A good light source and magnifying glass should be available to observe the extent of specimen breakage.

Common conditions of damage to specimens, from mild to severe

Discolouration of the coating, but no damage.
Cracking of the coating surface and then loss of adhesion to the leather
The coating becomes a powder and is accompanied by partial peeling.
Granular cracking of the leather.
Continued destruction of the leather fibres and eventual breakage.

What is a flexometer

Flexometer, also known as bally leather flexing tester, leather bending tester, is an international instrument used to evaluate the bending resistance of various light leather and its surface modifiers. It is mainly used to test the bending resistance of leather under continuous bending. So how to use a flexometer for a flexometer test? The flexometer uses one side of the specimen as the internal test and the other side as the outer side for reciprocating bending to the damage of the test piece and record the bending times, or after bending a certain number of times and observe the degree of damage. Put the sample into the fixture of the testing machine, twists and turns, then observe the surface of the specimen with a magnifier, and record the degree of damage to test the flexure strength of the specimen.

Flexometer definition: the bending resistance of various leather under continuous bending, it is an important indicator of the durability of leather. We will provide you more flexometer description if you contact us.
