Applications

Compression testing of corrugated cardboard and paper products. A test piece of corrugated cardboard or paper is placed between the platens of a crush tester with the flutes perpendicular to the platens. It is then subjected to compression until failure. The maximum force sustained by the test piece is measured.

Note: The platens may be faced with a very fine abrasive paper, but where this is done, care must be taken to ensure the faces remain flat and parallel.
