Product Details

The Textender is designed to evaluate the stretch, recovery, and growth properties of fabrics, especially those used in sportswear and athleisure clothing.

Stretch and recovery testing is used to determine the stretch, comfort and fit of a fabric, as well as understanding how well the fabric returns to its original condition after being stretched.

The Textender meets both the ASTM D2594 and ASTM D3107 standards which historically require 2 different testers. The new design also meets the modified requirements of a number of renowned retailers of knitted and woven fabrics made from stretch yarns.
