Summary of ISO 2759 Bursting Strength Testing of Boards

ISO 2759 is a standard that defines test procedures for determining the response of paper and board to wet compressive stress. The standard outlines a method for measuring the mechanical properties of paper and board when subjected to a specified amount of water. The test results can be used to determine the strength and other properties of the material, as well as its ability to resist water damage.

ISO 2759 package integrity testing is an essential component of the overall packaging system and helps to ensure that goods are delivered in a safe and secure manner. The standard is typically used in the paper and packaging industry to evaluate the quality and performance of paper and board products.

By performing package integrity tests, manufacturers and distributors can reduce the risk of damage to goods during transit and improve customer satisfaction.

ISO 2759 provides a standardized, reproducible method for evaluating the wet strength properties of paper and board, and is an important tool for quality control and product development in the industry.

ISO 2759 Package Testing Procedures

The test procedure involves placing a sample of the material in a dish of water and then applying a compressive load, which is typically measured in kilopascals (kPa). The test results are typically reported in terms of the peak compressive stress, the time required for the stress to reach its maximum value, and the deformation of the material under load.

The standard defines three different test methods for determining the response of paper and board to wet compressive stress: Method A, Method B, and Method C.

Method A is used for materials that are not easily deformed, such as high-strength corrugated board. Method B is used for materials that are more easily deformed, such as lightweight tissue paper. Method C is used for materials that exhibit a moderate degree of deformation, such as medium-weight packaging paper.

The test procedure involves placing the test specimen in a dish of water, and then applying a compressive load to the specimen using a specified test apparatus. The load is applied slowly, and the resulting deformation of the specimen is measured over time.

The results of the test are reported in terms of the peak compressive stress, the time required for the stress to reach its maximum value, and the deformation of the material under load. 

These results can be used to evaluate the wet strength properties of the material, including its resistance to wet buckling, its ability to maintain its shape under load, and its ability to resist tearing and breaking when wet.
