The Gurley Bending Stiffness Tester measures the force required to bend a wide variety of flat materials under controlled and repeatable conditions. This force can be equated to stiffness, resilience, flexibility, or pliability depending on the nature of the material and the purpose of the test. A lookup table, and/or software bring all combinations of size and counter weights to a common range of readings on a continuous scale from 1 – 3,358,720.
