How far can you stretch a fabric with a load of 15 Newton?
This is how we define Coefficient of Stretch.
If we have a piece of fabric which is 25 cm and it can be stretched to double that, then the coefficient is x 2,0. In other words you can have an extreme twist in your swing without the fabric resisting. We have allowed an independent laboratory to investigate the stretch coefficient in our usual rain fabrics. Our new material abacus® Barton Stretchlite has the almost unbelievable x 2,64 in CoS.
The study was conducted by The Textile & Leather Laboratory Stockholm.
The test was carried out according to the European standard:
”Determination of the elasticity of fabrics (EN14704-1:2005) part1: strip tests”
The term Coefficient of Stretch (CoS) belongs to Abacus Sportswear AB.
The technology of the materials and fabrics develops continuously. We are putting in a lot of time and energy to be ahead of the business with garments that you can count on when it comes to their functionality. To be able to use our technical terms in the best way, and describe how abacus® relates to and uses new technology and materials we have put together this technology guide.
