Bursting Strength

This test method describes the measurement of the resistance of textile fabrics to bursting. The force required to rupture a fabric by distending it with a force applied at right angles to the plane of the fabric under specified conditions. Burst strength is widely used for knit fabrics, non-woven fabrics, and felts where the constructions do not lend themselves to tensile tests. The two basic types of burst tests are the diaphragm method and the ball-burst method.
