Gas Electron Multiplier (GEM) technology is being used in various applications, particularly in high energy physics experiments. The GEM is known as a reliable detector in high radiation environment which can maintain high temporal and position resolution. GEM foil is the basic part of the detector which consists of a composite material (polyimide and copper). Large size GEM foil has complex mechanical structure and asymmetries which mainly arises due to formation of the HV sectors in the foil. These asymmetries become very relevant when large size foils are stretched to build a detector. In this article asymmetry affects are presented that define the tensile properties of a large size segmented GEM foil.
