Mechanical properties of paperboard, corrugated board, paper and liner

Mechanical propertis of paper, paperboards, liner and other paper based materials are needed to determine the behaviour of end-products, or to do FEM simulations of paper materials.

Cause

RISE can determine relevant material properties

Benefit

To be able to improve product quality it is necessary to be able to measure the behaviour correctly. RISE have a long tradition to develop test methods for paper products.

Method

Testing equipment in the lab:

•Multi-purpose testing devices: 4 hydraulic machines and 3 screws-driven machines

•Load interval: 1 N – 40 kN

•Strain measurements by: Extensiometers, LVDT gauges, Piston displacement

•Characterization of material properties

–Static

–Dynamic, pulses down to 5 ms

-Creep

Deliveries

•Standard testing of mechanical properties including

–In-plane tension, fracture toughness, SCT, bending stiffness

–Corrugated board measurements, such as CMT, FCT

–Structural thickness

–Grammage

•Specialised equipment developed in-house, e.g.

–In-plane compression tester for static or creep testing

–Hygroexpansion

–Creasing and folding

–Surface wear

•MTS for various testing and method development

–ZD tensile,

–ZD compression

–Out-of-plane shear tests

–Biaxial testing

–Creep

–Pressing simulator

–Short tensile testing

•Characterization of variations

–In-plane variations during e.g. tensile testing

–Shear strength profiles in the through thickness direction
