Applications of Tensile Strength Test in Different Industries May 24, 2023

Applications of Tensile Strength Test in Different Industries

1. Aerospace and Aviation Industry

1.Choosing lightweight materials that can help reduce fuel consumption but still satisfy the specific application’s strength requirements

2.Verification of the functionality of composite materials – combination of different materials that have superior specific strength compared to a single material

3.To test for tensile strength of adhesive bonds, carpets, cables, gaskets, hoses, seat belts, wiring looms, and harnesses

2. Automotive Industry

1.Determination of the breaking strength of a seat belt, which is crucial for automotive safety, as well as the car seat’s foam rubber

2.Assessing the quality of exterior fittings, such as door and window seals, mirrors, mud flaps, and bumper moldings and trims

3.Assessing the quality of interior fittings, such as airbags, dashboards, handles, mirrors, and handbrake levers

4.Using tensile test to develop and perform quality control on lightweight and high-strength materials, which are essential in safety and fuel economy

3. Metals and Construction Industry

1.Use of Tensile Preparation ASTM E8 – the most popular method of testing metals – by metal fabricators to assess the tensile strength of steel preparation, produce materials with the right ductility and strength, and pass the compliance standards to ensure high-quality and safe materials

2.To test tensile strength of safety support nettings, timbers, and geotextiles

3.Testing bond strength of adhesives, sealants, mastics, and between layers of brick and foam

4. Electrical and Electronics Industry

1.Tensile straining of conductive film and substrate used in flexible electronics to determine their mechanical and electrical behavior

2.Characterizing pull-off properties of crimped, soldered, or welded electrical contacts and components

3.Measuring tensile strength of printed circuit board (PCB) materials

4.Testing for tensile strength of electrical wires to meet specific requirements

5.Measuring withdrawal force of connectors

5. Medical Equipment and Materials Industry

1.Assessing the compression and tensile strength of lenses to guarantee it can withstand everyday use

2.Tensile strength testing surgical tubes to identify its mechanical properties and possible material and junction defects that could harm the patient

3.Testing catheters to assess intra-tubular flexion and accurate transmission of torsion necessary to change direction through guide wires

4.Determine whether bandages, dressings, and textile materials are elastic enough

5.Identifying the elongation of surgical gloves, silicone rubbers, and other soft stretchable medical materials

6.Testing the strength of needles and injectors

7.Testing the joint strength of respiratory masks and IV connector fittings

6. Packaging and Paper Industry

1.Measuring the elongation and strength of plastics, board, or paper

2.Measuring the maximum load that a material can withstand before it tears or ruptures

3.Assessing how easy or difficult it is to open a packaging

4.Measuring the force required to tear a seal, adhesive bond, or label and open snap-caps and pop-caps

5.Characterizing the folding properties of cartons and boxes

6.Knowing the tensile properties of paper that has to be fed to automated machines, and run through huge rolls over long distances at high speeds to print different paper products

7. Plastics and Rubber Industry

1.Testing the strength and rigidity of carbon fiber reinforced plastics or CFRP

2.Assessing whether rigid and flexible plastic and rubber products have enough strength to withstand external physical stress

3.Identification of the elongation and necking or yield strength of plastic and rubber products

4.Evaluation of the strength of interlocking rubber or plastic components

5.Testing the adhesion of plastic or rubber labels

6.Measuring the quality of products made from plastic or rubber

8. Sport and Fitness Industry

1.Tensile testing not only during production of strings but also checking the tensile strength, knot strength, elongation of strings at certain loads to ensure quality of tennis, squash, and badminton rackets

2.Testing tensile strength of thermoplastic elastomers and vulcanized rubbers used in soles of athletic footwear and sports equipment

3.Testing tear and tensile strength of leather and fabrics used in performance footwear, apparel, and equipment to guarantee that failures are minimized

9. Textiles Industry

1.Assessing whether a fabric is strong enough to be wearable and resist damage from regular use

2.Testing the breakage strength, tear resistance, and elongation of natural and synthetic fabrics, thread, yarns, cords, and ropes

3.Testing the strength of vulnerable seams

4.Characterizing pull-off properties of buttons, zip fasteners, stitched decorations, poppers, hook-and-loop fasteners, and press studs
