TexTender - Static Elongation Instrument

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.

The Textender can be supplied in 3 different configurations to best suit your laboratory environment:

  • Wheeled 3 stations instrument
  • Wheeled 6 stations instrument (3 stations per side)
  • Wall mounted in multiples of 3


The Textender can be supplied with optional rulers and benchmarking template to help ensure accuracy in sample measurement both before and after testing.
