Short-span compression test (SCT)

ISO 9895, DIN 54518 or TAPPI T 826

In the short-span compression test the compressive strength of paper is determined to ISO 9895, DIN 54518 or TAPPI T 826.

Purpose of the test

  • In the short-span compression test (SCT) the compressive strength of paper in compression mode is determined.
  • Because only a very short length of paper (0.7 mm) is used in the test, greater account is taken of the load-bearing fiber portion of the material than with the traditional test methods (ring crush test, corrugated crush test or linear crush test).
  • Determination of the compressive resistance has now become established as an alternative to the ring crush test.

Short-Span Compression Test (SCT) with ZwickRoell

  • A very stiff test arrangement keeps the influence of the machine on the specimen to a minimum.
  • Specimen and load cell are located in the same symmetrical axis, eliminating bending moments which may distort results.
  • Optimum specimen parallelism is achieved with the ZwickRoell strip-cutter.
