puncture resistance test iconPuncture Resistance Testers

Puncture resistance is a function of controlled stretch and tear at a point. There are two sides to puncture resistance: it can be used to measure the sharpness of a point in penetrating a known membrane, or the resistance of a membrane to a known point. Testing is therefore as important for medical devices such as hypodermic and suturing needles, as for silicone-stopped vials, and sharps containers.

High-force puncture testing is used for sharps, and for protective clothing such as gloves, stab vests, and fabrics for inflation. Slow puncture testing employs a radiused probe under load, applied more slowly, and is important for materials such as foils and films, construction membranes or geotextiles.
