Conduct Advanced Mode Bursting Strength Test on Foil Paper
Foil wrapping is considered to be ideal for storing food that needs to maintain its heat for a few hours. Since aluminium foil can withstand high temperatures and acts as a good insulator, it plays a vital role as a food packing material. Aluminium foil is made from an aluminium alloy and usually has a thickness between 0.00017 and 0.0059 inches. It is manufactured in multiple widths and strengths for around hundreds of applications. Manufacturers conduct high-precision testing on them, to target the sample for a particular application as per its strength. In order to evaluate the Bursting strength of a foil paper, one must use an advanced mode testing equipment, like Bursting Strength Tester –Digital Pneumatic with Printer.
The machine comes with high-tech features and pneumatic control for applying pressure. The pneumatic application works with hydraulic pressure which ensures automated vertical load with zero human interference.
It is utilized for testing the Bursting strength of materials like paperboard, paper, corrugated fiberboard, plastic films, foil etc. The design complies with numerous testing standards such as ASTM D3786-01, ASTM D 3786 – 80A, and ISO 1060 PART-1 1987.
It allows the operator a hassle-free experience with the Single Push Button Operation. Equipped with automated sample lock and strong gripping clamps which ensure zero slippage of specimen during the test. Moreover, the test specimen holder has a grooved structure to enhance the holding capacity. Microprocessor-based bright LED display screen delivers highly accurate data with single or repeatable test along with feather-touch control buttons.
During the test procedure, the Bursting Strength Tester
records the peak hold value in the memory automatically, you don’t need to note the time anywhere else. Also, it can hold up to 9 test readings. With the application of multidirectional Pneumatic Force, one can obtain zero error test easily. The highlighting feature of this equipment is its in-built Printer Facility. The operator can take a print out of the test results soon post the cycle completes.
Bursting strength is an essential aspect of quality control in many industries. It categorizes the samples as per their strength for various applications.
