Stretch and Set Tester

The Stretch and Set Tester comes in both a manual and power version.  It is a table-top mechanical tester. The tester is used to evaluate the propensity for a leather or fabric to develop a permanent stretch. It includes hardware for clamping your test specimens and attaching the weight.

The Power Stretch and set Tester is designed to reduce operator induced erros to improve the accuracy of test results.  The operator installs the specimen and sets the timer.  The tester automatically lifts the sample with the appropriate load for the designated length of time, then carefully lowers the weight and sample back onto the platform.
