Test Method: SATRA TM181
Strength of buckle and strap attachments
This method is intended to determine the strength of buckle and strap attachments in completed footwear. The method is applicable to all footwear containing buckle and /or strap fastenings.
A test specimen containing a buckle and/or strap is gradually stretched by a tensile machine until failure occurs. The breaking force and the type and position of failure are determined. Depending on the cutting and clamping positions the method can be used to determine the strength of buckle attachment, the strength of the strap in the closed buckle, the strength of the strap attachment, the strength of the strap, or the strength of the whole assembly.
