Description

The maximum amount of pressure a material can withstand before breaking down or tearing. The pressure is applied at right angles to the plane of the material (such as a paper or textile). The bursting strength is usually expressed in weight per per square area. A high bursting strength indicates that the material is able to resist rupture when placed under pressure. Bursting strength tests are used for paper, knit fabrics, and felts.
