TAPPI T810 Burst Test of Corrugated

Testing Standard:

TAPPI T810 Bursting Strength of Corrugated and Solid Fiberboard ie. TAPPI T810 Burst Test of Corrugated

Standard Number
TAPPI T810

Standard Title
Bursting Strength of Corrugated and Solid Fiberboard, Test Method

Overview of TAPPI T810 Burst Test of Corrugated:

TAPPI T810 Test Method details the method of obtaining the maximum bursting strength measurement of corrugated board and other solid fiberboard materials with a burst strength range of 690 – 4825 kPa (100 – 700 psi). This property is essential when evaluating the strength of paper for puncture resistance. BOARD

The TAPPI T810 Burst Test of Corrugated Board is a standard test method used to determine the bursting strength of corrugated board. This test is commonly used in the paper and packaging industry to evaluate the performance of corrugated board materials and to ensure they meet specific quality standards. The test involves placing a test specimen of corrugated board between two clamps. A rubber diaphragm is then inflated with water pressure until the specimen ruptures. The pressure at which the specimen ruptures is recorded and is used as an indicator of the material’s burst strength. The TAPPI T810 test method provides a standard procedure for performing the test and specifies the equipment and procedures to be used. The test method is widely accepted and recognized by the paper and packaging industry.

The burst strength of corrugated board is an important factor in determining its suitability for various packaging applications. Higher burst strength indicates increased resistance to external forces and ability to protect the contents of the package. Therefore, it is important to ensure that corrugated board materials meet specific burst strength requirements to ensure the highest quality and reliability of the product during transportation and storage. Purple Diamond Testing offers TAPPI T810 Bursting Strength of Corrugated and Solid Fiberboard as part of our packaging compliance and validation services.

Rationale of TAPPI T810 Burst Test of Corrugated:

TAPPI T810 Burst Test of Corrugated. Can be used to evaluate the strength of corrugated and solid fiberboard materials that fall within the above parameters. Inexpensive and relatively easy to perform, this test method yields results that simulate the strength characteristics of some end use requirements. This is achieved by securing the material between annular clamps and applying increasing pressure through a rubber disk until failure occurs. The maximum pressure up to material rupture is recorded as the bursting strength.

The TAPPI T810 Burst Test is a standard test method used to measure the bursting strength of corrugated cardboard. The test involves applying hydraulic pressure to a small circular area of the corrugated board until it bursts.

Corrugated cardboard is made up of an inner layer of fluted paper, sandwiched between two outer layers of flat paper. The fluting provides strength and reduces the weight of the material, while the flat outer layers provide a smooth surface for printing and labeling. The burst test is performed by cutting a circular sample of the corrugated board and placing it in the testing machine. A pressure piston is then placed on top of the sample and pressure is gradually increased until the sample bursts. The burst strength of corrugated board is typically measured in pounds per square inch (psi) or kilopascals (kPa). The higher the burst strength, the stronger the corrugated board will be and the more weight it can withstand. The TAPPI T810 Burst Test is widely accepted in the paper and packaging industry and is used by manufacturers, quality control personnel, and other stakeholders to ensure that corrugated board meets the required strength specifications.
