ASTM D6775

Standard Test Method for Breaking Strength and Elongation of Textile Webbing, Tape and Braided Materials

This method determines the breaking strength and elongation of a textile webbing, tape, and braided materials using a split-drum type clamp.

The specimen is centered between the two halves of the split drum in the upper clamp to begin. Next it is wrapped down and around the back of the lower half of the drum and around the upper half so that it comes over the upper clamp front.  The opposite side is started at the back and loosely wrapped around both halves of the lower clamp.  From the back, the upper half is lifted off the drum and the specimen inserted centrally and completely between the two halves of the drum.  Remove the slack.  Begin testing.
