What is Bally flexing tester?
Bally Flexing Tester, also known as flexometer, leather bending tester. It is an international instrument used to evaluate the bending resistance of various light leather and its surface modifiers under continuous bending.
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. In addition, TESTEX also sells De Mattia flexing tester, Schildknecht flexing tester, and Crumple flexing tester, you can have more choices.
How does Bally flexing tester work?
How to use a bally flexing tester for a flexometer test? The flexometer uses one side of the specimen as the internal test and the other side as the outer side. 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.
Record the bending times, or after bending a certain number of times, and observe the degree of damage. observe the surface of the specimen with a magnifier, and record the degree of damage to test the flexure strength of the specimen.
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.
A: Yes, it is.
