17-36 Short Span Compression Test (SCT, STFI): 500N

The 17-36 Short Span Compression Tester measures the compression strength of paper and board.





The 17-36 Short Span Compression Tester measures the compression strength of liner and fluting.
SCT-Short Span Compression is considered an important property and can be used to predict the performance of container board used in the manufacture of corrugated boxes.

The span or gap is set to a distance between 0.3-0.7mm. When performing a compression test on such a short distance, the stability of the clamps and instrument are critical. The 17-36 Short Span Compression tester incorporates a precision mechanical design to reduce frictional errors, providing unmatched accuracy and repeatability.
