Testing the bursting strength of your packaging products is one of the important parameters that will be considered while delivering your products to the customers. The bursting strength indicates how well the material can withstand the bursting force. Thus, to test the bursting strength of packaging materials like corrugated boxes, you can easily make use of the Testronix bursting strength tester. This is one of the amazing testing equipment that puts hydrostatic pressure that will rupture the material.

Here in this blog, we are going to provide you with information about the role of this amazing testing equipment in the packaging industry.

How bursting strength tester helps in product improvement?

Quality is one of the important factors that can break or make your product impression on your customers. Thus, to deliver quality packages to your customers, you need to make sure that your product will undergo certain tests. Bursting strength tester from Testronix is one of the best-selling and reliable testing instruments that will help you to determine the bursting strength of corrugated boxes. When the specimen will be held between two annular clamps then it will undergo sufficient pressure to minimize the slippage.

It comes with a circular diaphragm of pure gum rubber which is clamped between the lower clamping plate and a pressure cylinder so that before the diaphragm is stretched by pressure underneath it, the center of its upper surface is below the plane of the clamping surface.

The main purpose of using this bursting strength tester is to determine the bursting strength of materials and check whether the product will be held the specimen under bursting force or not.

This testing equipment has been compiled with industry standards like ASTM D 3786-01, ASTM D 3786 – 80A, ISO 1060 PART-1 1987.
