Box Crush and Stacking Crush Tests

DIN EN ISO 12048, TAPPI T 804, DIN EN ISO 12048

In the box crush and stacking crush tests the strength or stackability of corrugated cardboard boxes or folding boxes is determined. In the box crush test the package is loaded up to nominal load or to failure; in the stacking crush test a stipulated force is maintained at a constant level for a specified duration or until the box fails.
