Product Description

CCSi features this high quality footwear flex tester for the evaluation of the resistance to cracking, delamination, discoloration and upper—to—sole bond of the upper or sole material when subjected to repeated flexing in a “walking step” simulation. It is applicable to many types of footwear materials and upper—to—sole bonding methods.

The Model HT8682 may be used at standard laboratory temperatures or operated under subnormal temperatures and is specifically designed to be used with the Model HT8043 Refrigeration Chamber.

There are several ASTM methods to which this instrument may perform equivalent evaluations, for example:

  • F911 “Standard Test Method for Flexibility of Running Shoes”
  • F1900 “Standard Test Method for Water Resistance of Footwear Using a Walking Step Simulator”
