TAPPI T576 Tensile Properties of Tissue Products

Testing Standard:

TAPPI T576 Tensile Properties of Towels and Tissue Products (Using Constant Rate of Elongation Apparatus)

Standard Number
TAPPI T576

Standard Title
Tensile Properties of Towel and Tissue Products (Using Constant Rate of Elongation Apparatus), Test Method

Overview for TAPPI T576 Tensile Properties of Tissue:

TAPPI T576 Test Method applies to all types of materials in this category. Finding the maximum tensile strength of the towel or tissue material helps find potential issues that could keep the product from performing as intended. TAPPI T576 is a testing standard developed by the Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry (TAPPI) for measuring the tensile properties of tissue products. The standard is used to evaluate the strength, stretch, and elasticity of tissue paper and other similar products.

The test is conducted by using a tensile testing machine, which measures the force required to pull a tissue paper sample until it breaks. The machine measures the load and elongation at a constant speed, providing the data needed to calculate the tensile strength, stretch, and other properties.

TAPPI T576 can be used to test a variety of tissue products, including facial tissue, toilet tissue, paper towels, and napkins. The test results can be used to evaluate product quality, consistency, and performance, and can help manufacturers optimize their production processes and improve product design.

Overall, TAPPI T576 is an important standard for the tissue paper industry, providing a reliable and standardized method for testing the mechanical properties of tissue products. Purple Diamond Testing offers this method as part of our packaging compliance and validation services.

Rationale for TAPPI T576 Tensile Properties of Tissue:

Data collected shows the quality of the fiber strength, fiber length, and bonding of paper which could find possible issues in meeting end use expectations. It’s also possible to evaluate how the materials tensile strength changes under different environmental conditions that may be typical for this product type.
