The importance of testing puncture resistance in packaging

Responsive image

In the fast-paced world of packaging, durability is a key factor that cannot be compromised. And when it comes to finding a material that combines strength and resilience, paperboard emerges as a game-changer. Testing each and every part of puncture is an important part of quality control. To make it easy for the manufacturers to conduct puncture resistance test on the materials, we at Testronix has designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as a puncture resistance tester.

This is one of the high-quality lab testing instruments that is used to test the puncture resistance of the materials like paperboard, corrugated board etc. This high-quality testing equipment has been designed in accordance with industry standards that include TAPPI –T803, ISO 3036 and ASTM D781.  This means manufacturers will get highly accurate testing results for testing paperboards, and other related materials against puncture resistance.

In this blog, we are going to discuss a brief about Testronix puncture resistance tester, and the importance of testing puncture resistance of packaging materials like paperboards.

Why paperboards should be tested against puncture resistance?

When it comes to packaging, puncture resistance plays a critical role in ensuring that products are protected throughout the entire supply chain. Whether it's during transportation, storage, or handling, packaging materials need to withstand various external forces and potential hazards to keep the contents safe and intact.

Paperboard's ability to resist punctures is derived from its unique composition and manufacturing process. Unlike traditional cardboard, which is made from a combination of paper and pulp, paperboard is constructed with multiple layers of densely compressed fibres. This layered structure enhances its strength and durability, making it resistant to punctures and tears. Additionally, paperboard can be further reinforced with coatings or laminates to enhance its puncture resistance properties, allowing it to withstand even the most demanding packaging environments.

The advantages of using paperboard with high puncture resistance extend beyond product protection. The lightweight nature of paperboard contributes to reduced shipping costs, making it a cost-effective choice for businesses.

Thus, to ensure that paperboard will remain in pristine condition, the manufacturers should make use of this quality testing equipment, to test the resistance of paperboard against puncture. This high-quality lab testing instrument determines the quality of the paperboard against puncture resistance.

Now, let us discuss brief information about the Testronix puncture resistance tester and the highly advanced features that are embedded in this lab testing equipment.
