Furthermore, how is bursting strength measured?
Bursting strength is measured by means ofa Mullen tester. The test specimen, held between annular clamps, issubjected to an increasing pressure by a rubber diaphragm, which isexpanded by hydraulic pressure at a controlled rate, until the testspecimen ruptures.
Likewise, how much weight can a corrugated box hold? Depending on the size and quality, a single wallcardboard box is likely to hold between 30-80 lbs. Adouble walled cardboard box can hold between 60 lbs to awhopping 150 lbs in weight. The corrugated cardboardadds miracles to its quality, with the center fluted sheet forminga support to two external sheets.
Also question is, what is bursting factor of corrugated box?
The bursting factor of the paper is burstingstrength divided by the basic weight of paper in grams persquare meter. The bursting strength tells you the amount ofpressure the paper can tolerate before it bursts orruptures. In case of corrugated boxes, the corrugatedor fluted paper improves the durability.
How much weight can a 32 ECT box hold?
An equivalent 44 ECT rated single wall cartonwill weigh on average 149 pounds per 1000 square feet ofmaterial used.
