Burst Test a minimal board Edge Crush Test (ECT)

The essential distinction between the two assessments is that beneath the Burst Test a minimal board basis weight is required. That is, the Burst Test requires that the underside papers used to make corrugated fiberboard weigh not lower than a positive minimal number of kilos per given unit house. The ECT eradicated this requirement, which allows utilizing lighter weight provides whereas nonetheless providing extreme effectivity. When you end up evaluating two identically sized cartons with equal strengths, one being Burst Test rated and one being ECT rated, the ECT rated carton will weigh a lot much less. In several phrases the ECT rated carton will use a lot much less corrugated supplies.


There are presently two assessments used all by way of the corrugated enterprise to seek out out energy. Historically, the very very long time enterprise commonplace has been the Bursting (Mullen) Test, which is expounded to the robust coping with sturdiness of corrugated supplies. Bursting Test is a measure of the ability required to rupture or puncture the face of corrugated board and is measured by a Mullen Tester. This energy will not be instantly related to a carton’s capability to withstand exterior or inside forces and thus to incorporate and defend a product all through cargo. Bursting energy is reported in kilos (as an example, 275#).

A extra moderen commonplace that has achieved widespread acceptance is the Edge Crush Test (ECT). This could be a true effectivity check out and is straight away related to the stacking energy of a carton. ECT is a measure of the edgewise compressive energy of corrugated board. It is measured by compressing a small part of board on edge between two rigid platens or plates perpendicular to the trail of the flutes until a peak load is established. That’s measured in kilos per lineal inch of load bearing edge (lb/in), nonetheless usually reported as an ECT value (as an example, 44 ECT).

Proper right here it is extremely essential degree out that the equal ECT values are give in any case value. It is as a result of corrugators might use one among many alternative “recipes” to make each type of corrugated. Each make-up will vary barely generally energy. For example differing formulation for a 200# single wall corrugated will set off the equal ECT board to vary between 32 ECT and 44 ECT. It is extremely essential understand what sort of corrugated you is perhaps using sooner than deciding to substitute any equal.

For example, if you happen to’re supply a product that weights between 25-40 kilos, a 32 ECT single-wall carton must be ample, typically. In case your carton goes to be subjected to excessive coping with, the 200# carton might be a larger selection. It is going to be equal to a carton with an ECT of 32 or elevated, and the bursting check out is further of an actual measure of robust coping with.


For example study a 275# single wall to an equal 44 ECT single wall corrugated board. On frequent, the 275# Burst Test rated single wall carton will weigh 175 kilos per 1000 sq. ft of material used. An equal 44 ECT rated single wall carton will weigh on frequent 149 kilos per 1000 sq. ft of material used. The 44 ECT board will reduce the material utilized by 14.8%.

Put in one other approach, the precise ECT rated corrugated provides an equal diploma of energy, nonetheless makes use of a lot much less supplies. This interprets into fewer raw provides, lower vitality requirements, and lowered air air pollution, in all phases of the bundle deal’s life cycle. Combining lighter provides in a accurately sized carton with rising portions of recycled content material materials means ECT rated corrugated reduces waste even further.
