ISO 9073-3 Tensile Properties




ISO 9073-3


Textiles — Test methods for nonwovens — Part 3: Determination of tensile strength and elongation


ISO 9073-3 Tensile Properties specifies a method for the determination of the tensile properties of nonwovens by the cut strip method.

This test procedure may require modification when testing some spun-laid and glass fiber nonwovens, as anomalies can occur when testing these materials.


Application of a force longitudinally to a test piece of a specified length and width at a constant rate of extension.

Determination of values for breaking strength and elongation from the recorded force-elongation curve.


IPS conditions and tests at 50% RH and 23°C. Wet tensile is an option.

SGS-IPS cannot sell or otherwise provide standards, specifications, or test procedures to third parties.
