Texture: Measure and analyse properties

Discover the wide range of texture and physical properties that can be measured with a texture analyser.

Our range of instruments can carry out fundamental, empirical and imitative tests, covering those relating to texture analysis, materials science and rheology of solid, semi-solid, viscous liquid, powder and granulate materials.

Texture Analysers are used to measure many properties, such as Hardness, Brittleness, Spreadability, Adhesiveness, Tensile Strength, Extensibility etc, on a vast range of products.

Specialist attachements enable the instrument to emulate forces applied to products in everyday comsumption or usage. The data captured by Exponent software during the test procdure is used to generate graphs which detail the reaction of each test sample to specified forces.

A representative selection of physical properties and tests that may be of interest is illustrated below...
