Paperboard is a paper-based material used for packaging or printing. It differs from cardboard in that it is thicker and more rigid. One of the key properties of paperboard is its crease resistance. This property is important because it determines how much the paperboard can be bent or flexed without breaking. Thus, with the Presto crease stiffness tester, one can easily test the crease resistance of paper boards and other related materials. Presto has recently launched a new model known as the Presto crease stiffness tester that has been designed in accordance with industry standards that will help the manufacturers to conduct crease stiffness tests on the materials with ease.
Here in this blog, we are going to discuss brief information about the Presto crease stiffness tester, and its top features. We will also discuss what crease resistance is and why it is one of the important properties of paper boards.
What is crease resistance?
As the name suggests, crease resistance is the ability of a paper or board material to resist cracking and breaking when it is bent or folded. This property is important in many applications, such as packaging, where paperboard needs to be able to withstand being bent or flexed without breaking.
Testing crease resistance is therefore essential to ensure that materials will perform as expected in their intended application. There are a number of different methods for testing crease resistance, which vary depending on the type of material being tested and the desired results.
Crease resistance testing is an important part of quality control for paper and board materials, and can help ensure that materials will perform as expected in their intended application.
It is important to test the crease resistance of paper boards because creasing is one of the main causes of paperboard breakage. When the paperboard is bent or folded, the fibers in the paper are stretched and compressed, which can cause them to break. The amount of force needed to break the fibers depends on the type of paper and the thickness of the board.
Presto offers a high-quality crease stiffness tester that is widely used to test the crease stiffness of different products like carton boards, paper, printing, and packaging materials.
All about Presto crease stiffness tester
It is essential to test for crease resistance when selecting paper boards for packaging applications. Crease resistance determines the ability of paperboard to resist cracking and breaking when bent or flexed. Thus, we at Presto have designed a high-quality crease stiffness testing instrument that is used to test the crease stiffness of paper boards and other related materials.
The crease stiffness plays a crucial role in determining the strength of paper boards that are technically important in the folding of carton blanks.
