I saw something referenced on product literature that I don’t understand. What’s a Mullen Burst test?
“Mullen burst” is a type of test that assesses the strength of a fabric by using a bursting method, or determining how much force is required to rupture the fabric as it is distended. The test method used is ASTM D3786: “Standard Test Method for Bursting Strength of Textile Fabrics—Diaphragm Bursting Strength Tester Method,” and it is also referenced in an ASTM test method for coated fabrics, ASTM D751.
