The breaking force is the maximum force registered (or reached) during a breaking test on the test piece, carried out on a tensile testing machine with constant rate of traverse of the moving element. The breaking force values given in the tables of rope specifications are only valid when this type of testing machine is used.

Equipment Required

Universal testing machine capable of a constant rate of extension of 200 mm/min +- 20 mm/min. The machine shall be capable of stressing the sample until failure occurs. If the test machine has a pre-tensioning capability, a pre-tension force of 5 mN/tex +- 22.5 mN/tex shall be applied to the specimen. By means of our testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the solution that is right for you.
