Background Denier : A unit of measure for the linear mass density of fibers. It is defined as the mass in grams per 9000 meters. Example: A single strand of silk is one denier, and a 9000m strand of p g , silk weighs one gram. Typical Flexometer : Designed for conducting experiments that require repeated d i tt bending tests. Bally type Flexometer: Designed for conducting experiments that require repeated folding.
