TAPPI T804 Shipping Container Compression Test

Testing Standard:

TAPPI T804 Compression Test of Fiberboard Shipping Containers

Standard Number
TAPPI T804

Standard Title
Compression Test of Fiberboard Shipping Containers, Test Method

Overview:

TAPPI T804 Test Method measures the compressive resistance ability of corrugated shipping containers and can be evaluated in various orientations and configurations. The ability to confirm if a box will meet the intended compression resistance required is essential during box design. Purple Diamond Testing offers TAPPI T804 Compression Test of Fiberboard Shipping Containers as part of our packaging compliance and validation services.

Rationale:

TAPPI T804 – Compression Test of Fiberboard Shipping Containers. This test method is useful in identifying the shipper’s max compression resistance. By testing it empty and by testing it full, the amount of load share expected from the inner contents can be calculated. In addition, by rotating the sample on its side or end, the max compression resistance can be obtained for these orientations, which simulates clamping forces. It is also possible to evaluate how the corrugated reacts to different environmental conditions, such as high humidity exposure.
