Paperboard Testing Instruments
The 1270 PCA measures the force to open or bend paperboard and scored paper carton.
This Coefficient of Friction Tester (COF) / Peel Tester can measure static and kinetic coefficient of friction as well as run seal strength tests, 180° peel, 90° peel, and T-peel tests. The FP-2260 also offers a tensile test mode to perform lightweight tensile tests up to 10 kg (22 lbf).
Its small bench top design makes the FP-2260 light weight allowing it to be used in a laboratory or setup out on the production floor for offline testing as needed.
Plastic film, paper, paperboard, adhesives, labels and packaging materials are ideally tested with the FP-2260.
Replaces the FP-2255.

Thwing-Albert's Vantage ZDT Tester is a compact, precision computer controlled instrument that measures the internal fiber bond strength of paper, paperboard, liner board and coated fine papers. Z-Directional force provides an indication of expected material performance relating to glue-bonding of carton corners and seams, delamination, and the use of high tack coatings.
- Fully automated instrument that performs sample compression, dwell time and ZDT
- The self-adjusting test platen ensures uniform tension is applied to pull the sample apart
- Adheres to Industry Standards: TAPPI T541 & ISO 15754
Thwing-Albert's QC Electronic Materials Testers provide quality solutions and have earned a well-deserved reputation as an easy-to-use, dependable testing platform. The QC-3A upholds the standards of the QC line while adding the functionality of a RS-232 interface, a digital load controller and enhanced software. Ideal for tensile, compression, coefficient of friction and peel analysis, the QC-3A is an extremely flexible, cost-effective testing system. The single-screw frame provides up to 1100 lbs (5kN/500 kg) tensile force with extremely accurate control throughout the entire load range. The digital load controller ensures extremely accurate, reliable test data.
