Cut sample with required chisel. Fix one end of the sample on the the fixed grip and fix the other sample end on the movable grip. Make sure that the cut position is at the center point of the arc of the rod. Ross flexing tester would flex the sample in certain speed. Check the cut growth at frequent intervals. Ross flex test aims to know rubber resistance ability of crack resistance when subjected to repeated flexing. More Rubber Testing Machine Here
Note: if the sample thickness is greater than required, use a surface grinder to reduce it. Check the thickness with rubber thickness gauge.
