DIN 53107

Introducing DIN 53107 - Industrial Physics  

DIN 53107 is a global DIN international standard that’s used to test the smoothness of paper or board using the Bekk method of smoothness testing.  

This DIN standard can be used for a wide range of papers and boards and is especially recommended for smooth surfaces.  

Bekk smoothness depends on the form, total volume and distribution of pores created between the paper surface and the ideal plane under the specified contact conditions. The higher the Bekk smoothness number, the greater the smoothness. The porosity of the tested product is also included in the measurement.  

Our DIN 53107 smoothness testing equipment

The DIN 53107 smoothness testing method shouldn’t be used when testing:  

  • Specimens with a thickness greater than 0.6mm 
  • Porous paper and board, since here the volume of air flowing through the specimen can falsify the result 
  • Very rough paper and board.

So, how can Industrial Physics improve your DIN 53107 smoothness testing 

Messmer Büchel – Bekk Smoothness Tester 58-05
The Automatic Bekk Smoothness Tester is a microprocessor-controlled instrument for testing the smoothness of paper and board according to the Bekk Method. The BEKK Tester determines the smoothness of the sample in BEKK seconds. Our smoothness tester is especially suitable for very smooth surfaces such as coated label papers or coated free sheets for the rapid determination of the smoothness of paper and board using the Bekk smoothness method 

Need DIN 53107 smoothness testing solutions? Get in touch  

We’ve learnt a thing or two about smoothness testing over the decades. Now Industrial Physics is recognized as a brand that likes to bring digital micrometers and smoothness testers to market. 

We like to share our knowledge and we’re here to help you to answer your questions about smoothness testing. Across the knowledgebase section of our website we publish lots of blogs on related subjects.   

For example, please have a read of this piece which compares two variables of common roughness / smoothness testers. Then you could try this article on porosity testing – the Gurley, Sheffield and Bendtsen methods. 

If you have any questions about DIN 53107 and how we can help you with your smoothness testing, then please just get in touch!
