Why bursting strength test is crucial for paper & packaging industry?

The quality of paper & its related materials plays an important role in ensuring that the product remains intact and safe during transport. The bursting strength of paper indicates the maximum amount of pressure or force a material can withstand before it bursts. By conducting bursting strength tests on the materials, manufacturers can easily ensure that their products meet the required standards and specifications. Thus, we at Presto have designed a high-quality digital bursting strength testing machine that is used to test the bursting strength of materials by applying hydraulic pressure under a rubber diaphragm of a specific area of the sample under test.

In this blog, we will discuss brief information about the Presto digital bursting tester and why the bursting strength test is one of the important quality tests in the paper & packaging industry. So, let us get started!

Introduction to Bursting Strength Testing

In the packaging industry, the bursting strength of a material is one of the key performance indicators used to measure the quality of the packaging. The ability of a material to withstand internal pressure is an important factor in determining its suitability for use in packaging applications.
When it comes to quality packaging, one of the most important tests that products must undergo is bursting strength testing. This test measures the amount of pressure that a material can withstand before it ruptures.
This simple and effective way is widely used in the paper & packaging industry to ensure the quality of materials delivered to the customers. Thus, to make it easy for paper & packaging manufacturers to conduct burst strength tests on the materials, we at Presto have designed a highly advanced digital bursting strength tester.
Now, let us discuss a brief about Presto bursting tester digital.

All about Presto bursting strength tester digital

The Presto bursting strength tester is one of the high-quality paper & packaging testing instruments that are used to test the burst strength value of the materials like corrugated boxes, cardboard and other related materials.
The bursting strength will be expressed in terms of kg/cm². It has been made as per industry standards that include ASTM D 3786-01, ASTM D 3786 – 80A, and ISO 1060 PART-1 1987 to ensure accuracy in test results.
This package testing equipment can easily measure the burst strength of the materials by submitting them to increasingly uniform hydraulic pressure. This is one of the most appropriate test procedures to measure the bursting strength of papers.
