How bursting strength is the strongest quality factor for corrugated boxes?
  • Gaurav Malhotra

Corrugated fiberboard and boxes are the most widely used type of packaging materials that will help manufacturers to deliver and store products accurately. Corrugated boxes are strong and sturdy which makes them ideal for protecting items during shipping. They can also be customized to specific sizes and shapes, making them versatile for a variety of packaging needs. In the shipping and transportation process, the corrugated boxes are prone to get damaged. This will result in the loss of products as well as customers. Thus, it is important for you to test the corrugated boxes before using them. Besides any other factors, the bursting strength of a corrugated box is considered to be one of the most important quality factors that will lead to damage to the box if not properly tested.

The term “bursting strength” refers to the amount of pressure required to cause a corrugated board to rupture. The test measures the force required to rupture a box easily. Thus, it is important for you to test the box before delivering them to the customers. Presto is Asia’s No.1 manufacturer of lab testing instruments and provides high quality bursting strength tester that is used to test the burst strength of corrugated boxes.  The digital pneumatic model of this lab testing equipment will help the manufacturers in testing the bursting strength of boxes and let the users view the printed testing results. Let’s deliberate deeply into this testing equipment and how it is useful in testing the bursting strength of corrugated boxes and other related materials. But first, let us focus on the importance of testing the bursting strength.

Importance of testing the bursting strength

Corrugated boxes are one of the most commonly used types of packaging as they provide a high level of protection for the items that they are holding. The corrugated paper is very strong and can withstand a lot of wear and tear, which is important when you are trying to protect fragile items. Additionally, the box itself can be custom-made to fit the specific needs of your product. This means that you can have a box that is tailored to fit your product perfectly, providing an extra level of protection.

Overall, using corrugated boxes for packaging provides a number of benefits that make them an ideal option for many different applications. But when these boxes are subjected to high pressure, then there are chances that they get burst.

Thus, it is important for paper & packaging manufacturers to conduct bursting strength tests on the materials and ensure that high-quality materials will be delivered. Thus, you can easily conduct package tests on the materials with the help of the Presto bursting strength tester. You can read more about how you can easily use a bursting strength tester for packaging.
