Breaking Extension

What is Breaking Extension?

Breaking extension refers to the measurement of the elongation or stretch a textile material can undergo before it breaks or reaches its maximum limit. It is an important property to consider in fabrics and fibers, as it determines their ability to withstand tension or pulling forces without tearing or breaking. Breaking extension is typically expressed as a percentage, indicating the increase in length of the material before it breaks compared to its original length. It is measured through standardized testing methods and is relevant in various applications, such as garment manufacturing, textile engineering, or product development.
