Film grips

Film gripsFTC offers specialty grips for securely locating samples under tension that are in the form of thin films or sheets.

The film grips secure flexible thin sheet, films or filaments, where conventional grips create stress points and so reduce tensile strength. Samples are wrapped around the drum spreading the load around the diameter. This fixture is rated to 500 N and the grips are supplied in pairs.

Trusted by customers across the world

My first contact with FTC was through buying texture analyzer equipment as my area of interest is Rheology. We faced a problem operating the appliance. The company tried hard to help us through the internet, but the University thought it was better to send me to the company branch located in England. I received a highly advanced training course for 10 days free of charge. They provided me with programs that operate the equipment along with the information needed.

It was a great effort and outstanding support. I would like to thank Shirl Lakeway and FTC for providing me with this opportunity and for his continuous help. Finally, I encourage researchers who are interested in the physical properties of foods and dairy to choose FTC as it is a respectable and dependable company and offers the best deals concerning prices and training with different languages, such as Arabic for the Middle East.
