Quality Testing for Corrugated Board
At ICS Packaging & Logistics, we have a quality department that tests corrugated cardboard boxes in accordance with ISO standards to measure their quality and resistance to use. Some of these tests are the following ones:
McKEE Formula – Compressive Strength
The McKEE formula is a tool that helps estimate the compressive strength of a corrugated cardboard box or the maximum load that the box can support. For the compressive strength value, ECT (Edge Crush Test) values, corrugated cardboard caliper, and box length, width, and height are used to ensure the integrity of the box.
The Mullen test (Mullen Test or Bursting Strength Test) measures the resistance to perforation or the condition of the corrugated cardboard. It is expressed in Kilograms per square centimeter (Kg / cm2) or in Pounds per square inch.
Resistance Test or ECT (Edge Crush Test)
This test is used to measure the ability of a box to withstand compression along the axis of the flutes, this test is used to determine the strength of corrugated packing.
Importance of packaging solutions
Packaging solutions are especially useful for protecting goods and products to be transported against shocks, falls and vibrations. Corrugated cardboard boxes are the best alternative, since in addition to being perfectly stacked, they arrive at their destination in perfect condition.
Corrugated cardboard boxes manufactured by ICS Packaging & Logistics offer high resistance to stacking (compression). As well as a great firmness to crushing (blows). The weight and volume criteria are categorical for cardboard boxes.
