Textiles — Bursting properties of fabrics — Part 2: Pneumatic method for determination of bursting strength and bursting distension


This document describes a pneumatic pressure method for the determination of bursting strength and
bursting distension of textile fabrics.
NOTE ISO 13938-1 describes a method using hydraulic pressure.
The method is applicable to knitted, woven, nonwoven and laminated fabrics. It can be suitable for fabrics
produced by other techniques. The test is suitable for test specimens in the conditioned or wet state.
From the available data there appears to be no significant difference in the bursting strength results
achieved using hydraulic or pneumatic burst testers, for pressures up to 800 kPa. This pressure range
covers the majority of performance levels expected of general apparel. For speciality textiles requiring
high bursting pressures, the hydraulic apparatus is more suitable.
