The CYC802 measures the dynamic strength of hair fibres by subjecting them to repeated cyclic tensile deformations until failure, simulating repeated grooming. Up to four cyclic modules can be integrated on an automated platform, offering high-throughput testing using up to four 50-fibre linear cassettes in a Cassette Hotel. An ideal technique for evaluating the damage caused by treatments (such as heat or chemical damage), and for claims relating to “strengthening” or “damage protection/prevention”.
- High throughput, automated testing – up to 4 cyclic modules can be integrated on an automated platform
- High capacity – 50 sample linear cassette and up to 4 cassettes in a cassette hotel
- Multi-tasking allows for simultaneous measurement, reducing resting time
