German term or phrase:TWT-Verhalten/TWT-Durchrißverhalten
context: establishment of maximum limiting value for processing moisture in the production of plastic tension pulleys
"Ein weiterer Versuch wurde gefahren, der den negativen Einfluß zu hoher Verarbeitungsfeuchte auf die Qualität der Bandspannrollen bestätigte. Indikatormerkmal war das TWT-Verhalten im abgeschwächten TWT -30 grad C/+120 grad C."
Also, the chart related to this section is entitled: "Einfluß von Verarbeitungsfeuchte auf das TWT-Durchrißverhalten" and shows the number of cycles until tearing plotted against the processing moisture in percent.
Thanks for your help so far, Fred,but what does TWT stand for?
Also, I'm not clear on which it is (the tearing or the through-tearing that is a complete separation at the predetermined point)?

occurence of through-tearing
Explanation: "Through-tearing" is different from "tearing" in that the tearing occurs as a complete separation along a predetermined separating line.

In lieu of "occurence of through-tearing" you might prefer "through-tearing characteristics."
I hope this is helpful.

Explanation: A guess, but it fits your context (and a lot of engineering German these days is English)
from the ref:
The two most commonly used terms when talking about web tension are PLI (Pounds per Lineal Inch) of paper and TWT (Total Web Tension). The equations for calculating PLI or TWT are PLI = TWT/Web Width and TWT = PLI x Web Width. Those who have a means of accurately measuring tension will find that the best results are achieved when running between 1 PLI and 3 PLI. A good starting point for printing 4-color process on 30-pound newsprint and 33 inches wide would be 1 1/2 PLI or approximately 50 pounds TWT.
