Universal Tensile Testing

The Alpha Technologies AT10 is an easy to use universal tensile tester for rubber, plastics, and additional materials. This instrument is a table top model with a maximum load value of 10kN. The AT10 performs tension, compression, peel, tear, adhesion, O-ring and other tests for QC and R&D applications. New software allows for simple recalculation of results, and data can be stored on the instrument computer’s hard drive, or interface with your LIMS network.
