ST91 Thin Film Puncture Jig

This fixture is designed to test the puncture resistance of flexible samples cut from thin film. Samples can be either circular or rectangular. The rubber lined clamp consists of an upper and lower clamp plate forced together by two toggle clamps. The standard clamp is 88mm diameter with a central 50mm diameter hole. The samples can be larger than the outside diameter of the clamp as long as the material is flexible enough to wrap around the sides of the body of the fixture. A standard 20mm probe is supplied, which mounts on the loadcell of the testing machine. Alternative smaller diameter clamp plates and other diameter of probe can be supplied on request, alternatively larger fixtures can be supplied if required.
