The FTT950 enables the direct measurement of the torsional properties (force and modulus) and the subsequent stress relaxation of single fibres, as well as being fully automated for a high throughput and efficient workflow. Fibres are pre-tensioned to a set force and twisted by up to 360° against a micro-balance, directly measuring torsional properties. Perfect for measuring the impact of products on hair fibre cuticle layers and cortex matrix (e.g. oil treatments), and the impact of torsion as a mode of deformation of single fibres during the production of composite materials.
- Direct torsional modulus measurements
- High sample throughput rate with the ALS1500
- Fully compatible with the FDAS770 for combined dimensional measurements
- Compact platform allows for system use within an environmental chamber
