Bending resistance (stiffness) of paper (Taber-type
tester in 0 to 10 Taber stiffness unit configuration) TAPPI/ANSI T 566 om-15

 

This test method covers a procedure used to measure the resistance to bending of papers which are of low grammage, or high flexibility, or both, and which exhibit bending stiffness in the range of 0 to 10 Taber stiffness units.


This test is used to determine the bending moment required to deflect the free end of a 38 mm (1.5 in.) wide vertically clamped specimen 15° from its center line when the load is applied 10 mm (0.39 in.) away from the clamp. The resistance to bending is calculated from the bending moment.
