The ball burst test on tissue paper and products explained

In the ball burst test on tissue paper and products the bursting strength is determined to EN ISO 12625-9. This test simulates the mechanical penetration of a sheet of tissue paper by a solid object.

Measuring ball burst strength with Zwick

  • The test device is designed for straightforward testing. The specimen is clamped horizontally between two platens, each of which has a circular aperture in the center.
  • The sheet under test is simply laid on the lower platen and the machine is started.
  • The specimen is automatically clamped and the test proceeds free from operator influence.
  • A polished ball penetrates the center of the specimen at a constant rate.
  • Using a 100N load cell, even forces below 1N can be recorded with the required accuracy. This allows reliable results to be obtained in research and development investigations also, with accurate recording of measured values far outside the usual range of 5 to 20N.
  • The maximum force (burst force) and the force with reference to the mass per unit area are measured.
  • It is also possible, if relevant, to analyse the force-deformation behavior, as deformation values are in principle also supplied by a testing machine .
