Every polymeric material has a certain capacity to resist tension.
Tensile Strength is the ability of the geocells to remain intact under pressure.
Lack of tensile strength will cause a geocells to be pulled apart over time as it withstands loads.
Tensile strength is a crucial factor when it comes to testing any geocells, as it will determine the maximum tension any material can withstand while being pulled or stretched before breaking.
Every polymeric material reacts differently when applied pressure, therefore, a geocells tensile strength determines its quality and performance.

Tensile Strength Test

Evaluating geocells durability under tension is a crucial factor for any geocell solution success.
The standard tensile strength test is call Cell Tensile Strength, and it includes 2 examinations.
The first examination is of full-sized geocell strip when being pulled by opposite ends.
The second examination is of the weld strength of the geocell ends.
Tensile Strength tests are extremely crucial in order to avoid geocell significant deformation, and global failure.
