Any of the texture analyser range can be used for the product tests listed below.
A selection of special attachments and typical measurements which are commonly used in this application area are shown above. However, this does not show the complete range of attachments available for the testing of gels and films. Test procedures include: compression, puncture/penetration, tension, fracture/bending, extrusion, cutting/shearing.

|Cylinder Probes and
Self-supporting gels can undergo
compression testing to provide a
measure of fundamental moduli.
|Back Extrusion Rig
This rig measures the consistency
of viscous and gelled products.
|Film Support Rig
This rig allows testing of thin, film-
like products to measure the burst
strength, resilience and relaxation
|90 degree Peel Rig
Allows 90 degree peel testing
via a sliding platform.
|Flexible Substrate Clamp
This device incorporates a multi-slot
plate and a clamping fixture for the
measurement of adhesiveness of
films against a substrate.
Provide a means of clamping a
film material for the measurement
of tensile strength and elongation.
Gripping pressure can be controlled
