ISO 2759 Burst (Mullen)

Standard:

ISO

Method:

ISO 2759

Title:

Board — Determination of bursting strength

Scope

ISO 2759 Burst specifies a method for measuring the bursting strength of board submitted to increasing hydraulic pressure. It is applicable to all types of board (including corrugated and solid fibreboard) having bursting strengths within the range 350 kPa to 5 500 kPa. It is also applicable to papers or boards having bursting strengths as low as 250 kPa if the paper or board is to be used to prepare a material of higher bursting strength, such as corrugated board. In such cases, the measurements will not necessarily have the accuracy or precision stated for this method and it is necessary to include a note in the test report stating that the test gave results that were below the minimum value required by the method.

In the absence of any commercial agreement as to which method should be used for materials with bursting strengths between 350 kPa and 1400 kPa, all materials with bursting strengths below 600 kPa, except components of solid and corrugated fibreboard, should be tested by ISO 2758 and the remainder by this International Standard.

Principle

A test piece, placed over a circular elastic diaphragm, is rigidly clamped at the periphery but free to bulge with the diaphragm. Hydraulic fluid is pumped at a constant rate, bulging the diaphragm until the test piece ruptures, The bursting strength of the test piece is the maximum value of the applied hydraulic pressure.

Samples

Basis weight required for Index Values.
