1 kN Henry Scott Grips

1 kN Henry Scott Grips

Henry Scott grips are a simple, economical solutions for testing soft, flexible strips of rubber, plastic and cloth. Specimens are held in place by rollers that feature a self-clamping action. The self-clamping action tightens as the sample is stressed and corrects for thinning experienced with materials such as elastomers. Parallel grooves are machined into the grip base opposite the rollers to securely grasp materials and minimize the likelihood of samples slipping.


Relevant Materials

Rubber, Soft Plastics, Paper, Cloth


Relevant Specimens

Plates, Tapes


While holding the roller away from the grip base, specimens are inserted between the grip base and roller. The sample is routed around the upper and lower rollers and finally secured by placing between the opposing grip base.
