The Stiffness Tester utilizes a two directional pendulum-type weighing system to evaluate material stiffness, flexural strength, resiliency and elasticity properties. Force is applied to the lower end of the specimen by a pair of rollers attached to the driving disc. The resulting torque tilts the pendulum from its vertical position and a Taber Stiffness Unit reading (g•cm) is taken automatically when the pendulum mark aligns with the appropriate driving disc mark (71/2° or 15°). Predetermined sample length, deflection angle and rate of loading provide accurate and reproducible test results.

Taber Stiffness testers are available in two models. Both units offer
bi-directional pendulum type testing in a range from 0-10,000 Taber Stiffness Units.
