Cobb Sizing Tester - A Must Have For Paper And Package Testing

by Universal Engineering Corporation Suppliers Of Precision Testing Instruments in Saha

Every paper and packaging material has the tendency to absorb moisture from its environment. Thus water absorbancy is yet another crucial property that is tested with the help of a cobb sizing tester. Amongst several physical properties of paper, water absorption capacity is tested to make sure the paper and packaging are not easily damaged while exposed to the environment. In the process, simulations are run to determine the water absorbency of the paper. 

If you are in any way related to the paper packaging or tissue paper manufacturing industry, you already know how important this parameter is to assess the quality of the paper? The cobb sizing tester is used worldwide for a similar objective - to assess water absorbancy by the surface of fiberboards. The more absorbency, the higher the paper product's quality, durability, and strength. 

The Goal Of Cobb Sizing Tester

Many people are initially confused - How to test a paper's quality as subjective as its absorbancy? Now there is a way. The water absorbency test, designed with a cobb sizing tester, accurately measures the absorbancy rate of a specimen under specified testing conditions. The test complies with ISO, SCAN, TAPPI, and PAPTAC standards. You can effortlessly run the tests on newsprint paper, art paper, corrugated boxes, tissue and other soft materials. 

If you are a packaging manufacturer, the test will help you pre-determine the moisture-holding capacity of the corrugated boxes. This, in turn, keeps you confident that the product is safe inside the box. If you are a manufacturer, the quality of packaging directly impacts your reputation and the future sales of your brand. And with the packaging industry on the boom, you do not want to spoil your chances in the industry.
