Extra long extensometer.

This provider of testing equipment designed to evaluate mechanical properties of materials and components offers its extra long travel extensometer (EXL). This precise device is used for measuring strain in highly extensible materials, such as elastomers, semi-rigid plastics and films.

Designed for use on electro-mechanical testing instruments, this high elongation extensometer is designed to easily and quickly clamp directly onto a specimen, according to the company. It is specifically designed to permit testing the sample through rupture without damaging the extensometer or disrupting the test routine.

The EXL measures specimen elongation up to 30", or 750 mm, of clamp displacement and has the ability to measure 3,000% strain with a 1" gauge length. The EXL adjusts to incremental gauge lengths, which are available in English or metric, ranging from .5" to 5", or 10 mm to 200 mm.

This company manufactures and services products used to test the mechanical properties and performance of various materials, components and structures in a wide array of environments. The systems evaluate materials ranging from the most fragile filament to advanced high-strength alloys.
