What is a puncture resistance tester and for what purpose it can be used?

Paper boards are commonly used in a wide range of applications, such as packaging fragile and non-fragile items effectively. However, paper boards can be prone to puncture if they are not properly tested. Even a minor cut in the board can allow moisture and contaminants to seep through the surface. Thus, testing the paper boards, fiberboards and other related materials against puncture is one of the important parts of quality control. Thus, we at Presto have designed a high-quality puncture resistance tester that is used to test the puncture resistance properties of the materials of paperboard, paper, and other related materials. Here, we will discuss a brief about the Presto puncture resistance tester and for what purpose you can use this lab testing instrument. So, let us get started.

Introduction about Presto puncture resistance tester

Puncture resistance is the ability of a material to resist penetration by a sharp object.
There are several factors that influence the puncture resistance of the material, including the size and shape of the sharpness of the object. The material’s thickness and stiffness, and the surface finish, will also contribute to determining the puncture-resistance strength of the material. In general, materials with higher puncture resistance are more difficult to pierce. Thus, if you are working in the paper and packaging industry and looking for high-quality lab testing instruments to test the puncture resistance strength of the materials, then you can go with Presto puncture resistant tester. From thin paperboards to thick boards and similar materials, users can easily conduct puncture resistance tests on the materials with the help of this high-quality lab testing equipment.

Purpose of using Presto puncture resistance tester

Testing the puncture resistance of paper boards is an important part of ensuring the quality of products. By testing different types of paper, you can identify which boards are most resistant to tears or breaks, and make sure that your materials are stored and transported safely in the most appropriate manner.

The Presto puncture resistance testing instrument will accurately help to determine the puncture resistance properties of cardboard boxes, corrugated boxes, fiberboards, and other related materials when subjected to sharp objects.

Digital Puncture Resistance Tester has been designed to determine the absorbed energy and the puncture resistance of cardboards and similar materials used for packing. This high-quality puncture testing instrument has been made in accordance with industry standards that include IS 4006 1987 (Part-II), TAPPI–T803, ISO 3036, and ASTM D781.
