SDL Atlas unveils Textender static elongation instrument
Posted February 3, 2021
ROCK HILL, S.C. – SDL Atlas’ latest instrument, the Textender, is designed to evaluate the stretch, recovery and growth properties of fabrics, especially those used in sportswear and athleisure clothing.
The Textender meets both the ASTM D2594 and ASTM D3107 standards that historically require two different testers. The new design also meets the modified requirements of a number of renowned retailers of knitted and woven fabrics made from stretch yarns.
In order to meet the testing needs of any laboratory environment, the Textender is supplied in three configurations, movable wheeled six-stations unit (three stations per side), movable wheeled three-stations unit, and wall-mounted three-stations unit.
The Textender provides accurate and reliable testing results through the use of precision multi-function station timers. Each timer can be operated independently and remotely, allowing the operator the flexibility of leaving the testing area during the test duration.
Three optional weights – 8, 3 and 1 pounds – can be combined to perform a variety of specific tests including ASTM test methods. Optional evaluation rulers and a custom designed bench marking template can be supplied for performing sample measurements both before and after testing.
Committed to providing customers confidence in standard based testing, SDL Atlas has offices and experts in the United States, United Kingdom, Hong Kong and China, plus agents serving over 100 countries, SDL Atlas is ready to support its customers with instruments, test materials and services anywhere in the world.
