Flexometer For Leather

The ability of light leathers and leather-cloth used in manufacture of shoe uppers, gloves, and garments to withstand repeated flexing without cracking is determined with the help of a flexing endurance test.

In this test, test specimens in shape of rectangular pieces are folded and clamped at each end to maintain them in a folded position in a set of grips, one of which is fixed while the other is able to oscillate. The movement of the oscillating grip causes the fold in the test specimen to run along its centre. This operation is carried out repeatedly and the test specimens inspected periodically to assess the damage produced. The equipment used for this test is called as Flexometer.

Approx. Price: Rs 1.4 Lakh / Unit

The Vamp Flex Tester is used for assessing the tendency of shoe uppers and lining materials to crack or fail at the flexing creases formed in the upper during walking.

 

In this test, square shaped test specimens are held at their opposite edges in two inverted V-shaped clamps having their holding faces in the same plane. One of the clamps is kept fixed while the other is made to move towards it and back repeatedly, producing cracks similar to those formed in the vamp of the shoe. This process is repeated continuously and the condition of the test specimens checked after different specified number of flexing cycles till failure occurs. For conducting resistance to hydrolysis the test specimens are conditioned in saturated water vapour atmosphere by keeping them in a dessicator above water for seven days at 70°C, followed by conditioning under a standard temperature for 24 hours before conducting the flexing test at -5°C.

Penetration through most upper leathers would be very slow if they were merely put into contact with water without flexing, and the rate of penetration of most leathers may be greatly accelerated by increasing the severity of the flexing (for example, by increasing the amplitude of the crank motion on the test machine). Experience shows that if all types of upper leather are flexed to the same extent when tested on the machine, the water proofness of thick leathers in actual wear will be under estimated, and that of thin leathers over estimated. For this reason, the machine is so constructed that any one of four amplitudes may be chosen for particular tests.

 

The Globe Auxiliary Apparatus is used for deciding whether a particular leather or group of leathers should be flexed with 5, 7.5, 10 or 15% amplitude.

In applications where an elastomer is subjected to frequent rubbing or abrasive actions as part of its use, it is of prime importance to ensure that the formulation used has a fair degree of resistance to abrasion.

One of the methods for determining the abrasion resistance of elastomers is by a Rotating Drum Abrasion Tester. In this test the elastomer under test is abraded against an abrading surface mounted over a rotating drum. The abrading surface has a specified abrading power. The test specimen, which is in form of a button, is held against it under a fixed load. The abrading surface is made to rub against the test specimen by rotating the drum at a fixed speed, the test specimen being meanwhile made to move along the axis of the drum.

Out-soles of footwear or other flexing components may suffer cracking due to flexing in use. Cracks usually develop at points of high surface strain resulting from the design of the sole pattern, without there being any cuts due to grit etc. to initiate them.

 

The Belt Flex Tester is designed to flex complete soles with their patterns intact in a way similar to flexing in actual use. Tests carried out using it provide a guide to the risk of such cracks developing during use.

 

In this test, test specimens are attached to the outside of a continuous belt, which is driven round two rollers. The larger roller drives the belt, while movement of the belt round the smaller roller provides the main flexing action. The radius of the smaller roller is chosen to make the flexing either more severe or less severe than in actual use.

A humidity chamber is used for exposing materials or products under test to an atmosphere of controlled humidity and temperature. For most of the materials it is used for conditioning the sample before the actual test is carried out. In case of helmets it is used to condition the helmets before conducting the impact absorption and penetration resistance tests on them.

The Globe Humidity Chamber is designed to produce controlled humidity using an appropriate saturated salt solution corresponding to the humidity required at the specified temperature. The salt solution is kept at the bottom of the chamber. The solution releases water vapour to increase the relative humidity, if it is below the specified value, or absorbs water vapour, if the relative humidity is higher.

The chamber is constructed from 10 mm thick transparent acrylic sheet and has two wide doors. Two shelves made of plastic material to keep the specimen under test on and two plastic trays for keeping the saturated salt solution are provided with the chamber.

 

An air-circulating fan to keep the conditions uniform in the chamber is also provided. The relative humidity and the temperature inside the chamber are measured with the help of dry and wet bulb thermometers.

 

Technical Data

 

  • Dimensions of chamber : 60 cm x 45 cm x 75 cm

 

  • Number of helmets that can be kept at a time : Four

 

  • Humidity control : By changing saturated salt solution (Recommended solution for 65% RH sodium nitrate)

          The resistance of Shoe Laces to wear and tear due to abrasion while tying is determined by abrading two samples of the lace against each other under a specified tension and finding the number of rubs which cause one of the laces to wear off till it breaks into two. One of the laces used in the test is formed into a loop and suspended from a pin in a vertical plane. One end of the second laces is held in a rotating grip. The lace is passed through the loop of the first lace and a specified dead weight suspended from its free and to keep both the loops under tension. The movement of the grip causes rubbing action between the two laces, which continues till one of them fails. The number of rubs needed to cause failure gives a measure of the resistance of the lace to wear. Wearing of lace against eye let can also be evaluated.
