500 N Screw Flat Grips for AGS-X Series and EZ-X Series
500 N (110 lbf) screw flat grips are a manually actuated flat grip with smooth grip faces. The grips are designed for low-force applications with small or sub-sized samples. Similar to standard screw flat grips, these grips are versatile and are used for static tensile testing a wide range of materials, including rubbers, plastics, textiles, cloth, and paper, in film form.
These grips are available as a grip set containing upper and lower grips or containing only an upper grip. The upper grip screws directly into the load cell and is compatible with AGS-X series 5 N (1.1 lbf) to 100 N (22 lbf) load cells and EZ-X series 5 N to 500 N load cells. Compatibility with larger-capacity load cells requires additional coupling joints. The lower grip fits into the lower joint of the universal tester.
Rubber, Plastics, Textiles, Cloth, and Paper
After placing the specimen between the grip faces, the specimen is clamped by finger tightening the bar handles on each side of the grip. To aid centering of the specimen, the grip body and grip faces include center markers.
