BFSV research into the quality of heavy-duty corrugated board

Long-term creep tests
Corrugated board cartons in long-term creep tests

The properties of corrugated board can vary considerably. But at present it is not always possible for users to tell clearly how efficient packages really are.

One of our research projects took a close look at strength properties of corrugated board. Better determination and description of the performance of heavy-duty corrugated board packages helps users and manufacturers. It enables you to use the optimum grade of corrugated board depending on the stresses that actually occur during transport, handling and storage. The result: Secure and cost-effective product packaging.

This research project was assisted by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) and the Federation of Industrial Research Associations (Allianz Industrieforschung - AiF).
