Scope of this Standard

This standard describes a pneumatic pressure method for the determination of bursting strength and bursting distension of textile fabrics. Note: EN ISO 13938-1 describes a method using hydraulic pressure. The method is applicable to knitted, woven, nonwoven and laminated fabrics. It may be suitable for fabrics produced by other techniques. This test is suitable for test specimens in either 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 specialty textiles requiring high bursting pressures, the hydraulic apparatus is more suitable.
