Kes Kato single fibre bending tester
Easy measuring and quantification of hair softness, flexibility and difference in volume, even for a single hair. By measuring the resistance (rigidity) and recovery of a hair when bent, this testing device quantifies hair softness, flexibility, and difference in volume.
It saves the trouble of preparing samples, because it only requires one hair for an easy measurement.
Single Hair Bending Tester
By adopting the Torsion Wire Torque Detection System, it catches the twisting moment that is detectable by the touch of a finger in a minute area. It also records high-quality data, which can then be correlated with sensory assessments.
Also, its ease of measurement eliminates measuring errors caused by users. The maximum detectable sensitivity of twist moment is 0.04mg•cm, and it has a super-accurate measuring range corresponding up to 1g•cm at full-scale.
