Any of the texture analyser range can be used for the product tests listed below.

A selection of special attachments and typical measurements are also shown which are commonly used in this application area. However, this does not show the complete range of attachments available for the testing of gel products. Test procedures include: compression, puncture/penetration, tension, fracture/bending, extrusion, cutting/shearing.


Typical measurements include:

  • Gel Strength

  • Bloom Strength (according to ISO)
  • Rupture Force
  • Elasticity/Brittleness
  • Adhesiveness
  • Fundamental moduli

Film Support Rig
This rig allows testing of thin, film-
like products to measure the burst 
strength, resilience and relaxation 
properties.


Application Studies are available for the testing of GEL products using the TA.XT2i, TA.XTplus, TA.XTExpress  or TA.HDplus texture analysers.

In addition, scientific papers have been published which reference the use of the TA.XT2i/TA.XTplus/TA.HDplus in the testing of GEL products.
