How do you calculate bursting strength of corrugated box?
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.
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.
