EL-15 Flexometer VAMP
The flexometer VAMP is used to evaluate the formation of cracks in the bending zone of the shoe during use, in accordance with the above standards. This test is suitable for the different materials used in the assembly slaps (in English Vamp), upper part of the rod covering the forefoot. These materials such as leather, synthetic and other coated textiles are exposed to cracks formation during bending.
The flexometer Vamp is made of 12 test items which have, in each unit, a fixed clamp and another mobile, which makes a constant movement back and forth. The gap between the cleats is 28.5 mm +/- 1.5 mm in the open position and 9.5 mm +/- 1.5 mm in the closed position, a race of 19 +/- 1.5 mm.
This test can also be carried out in a cold room.
