10 N Screw Flat Grips

10 N Screw Flat Grips

10 N (2.2 lbf) screw flat grips are primarily used for tensile testing low- force, soft materials such as yarn, paper, plastics, and cloth. Grip faces are flat and rubber-coated to secure materials and protect delicate samples. A notch in the upper grip helps center samples for optimal sample placement and an S-shaped universal joint ensures alignment with the loading axis. Pair these grips with a 10N to 50N load cell for optimal fitment and results.

These grips are supplied with a coupling that connects with AGX-V series 5 kN (1,100 lbf) and lower-capacity load cells. Additional load cell coupling parts are required for the AGS-X and EZ-X series and are listed as accessories.


Relevant Materials

Yarn, Paper, Plastics, Cloth


Relevant Specimens

Plates, Films, Wires, Threads, Filaments


Samples are threaded through the notch in the upper grip and tightened in the center of the grip face. Knurled knobs on both the upper and lower grips are finger tightened to clamp specimens within the grip faces. Samples are placed between the bottom grip, aligned with the centering mark and clamped in place to prepare for testing.

Note 1: The upper grip length includes the length of the S-shaped universal joint.
Note 2: The load cell coupling is applicable to 5 kN or lower AGX-V load cells. Additional coupling joints are required when these grips are used with AGS-X series and EZ-X series load cells.
