FlexiFrame is used for stretch, growth and recovery testing in several standards where the use of a tensile tester would be prohibitive due to the time (usually several hours) required for testing. It is supplied as either portable or wall-mounted to suit your laboratory environment.

The FlexiFrame is standardised and calibrated, giving you and your customers confidence in the quality and repeatability of your results.

A range of accessories are included with the FlexiFrame, including hanger assembly and stackable weights. This means the user has everything they need to begin testing to the relevant standard.

User error and working out time are minimised as the instrument is also supplied with a dimensional stability ruler, allowing the user to work out both measurements and percentages at the same time.
