In the packaging sector, it's critical to test all of your products' qualities to ensure that delivery is error-free. Burst strength is one of the most important qualities of packing materials like corrugated boxes. When these boxes are subjected to compressive buckling strain, they are more likely to rupture. Thus, testing the bursting strength of these materials beforehand is necessary to ensure the quality product will be delivered to the customers. To perform the bursting strength test, we at Testronix Testing Instruments have come up with one of the amazing lab testing equipment known as the bursting strength tester digital model. This is one of the amazing lab testing equipment that is helpful in testing the bursting strength of cartons or boxes with ease.

Whenever you conduct the bursting strength test then you need to place the specimen accurately on the bursting strength tester. Here we will focus more on the bursting strength test and why you should conduct this test for cartons or corrugated boxes. So, let us get started!

What is the bursting strength test for cartons?

The bursting strength of materials is defined as the pressure at which machines will get burst. Thus, it is important to test the resistance of the bursting of cartons to make sure the correct products will be delivered to the customers. You can read more about the bursting strength of cartons here.

According to the FICCI, cardboard goods account for more than 30% of the packaging sector. This is due to the widespread usage of corrugated boxes. For example, regular slotted containers are one of the most extensively used forms of shipping and storage boxes.

Corrugated cartons are inexpensive, long-lasting, and environmentally friendly. Not all boxes, however, are created equal. That is, they differ significantly in terms of compressive strength, thickness, chemical resistance, and other characteristics. Thus, testing the bursting strength of these boxes is highly important to make sure that they do not get ruptured during storage or delivery of the product. You will get a lot of benefits with the use of a bursting strength tester. We at Testronix Testing Instruments have come up with one of the amazing testing instruments known as the bursting strength tester. This lab testing equipment has been designed in accordance with industrial standards like ASTM D 3786-01, ASTM D 3786 – 80A, ISO 1060 PART-1 1987. Below we have listed the features and technical specifications of this lab testing instrument.
