Thwing-Albert is the original manufacturer of the Elmendorf Tear Tester which was designed one-hundred years ago by Dr. Thwing and Mr. Armin Elmendorf. This method established the industry standards used worldwide today to measure tear strength.
The ProTear Touch updates this design to feature a touch-screen and an increased capacity up to 12,800 grams. Now customers can also change the capacity quickly without the need for tools. The tester provides a rapid and precise way to evaluate the tear resistance of sheet materials including paper, textiles, roofing products, plastic film, and foils. Learn More
