Internal bond strength (Scott type), Test Method TAPPI/ANSI T 569 om-22
Printing, converting and many product applications subject paper and paperboard to impulses, impacts and shock loads into or out of the plane of the sheet. These can cause structural failures such as surface picks, blistering or delaminations within the interior of the sheet. The common denominators of these failures are a) the high velocity of the impact loads b) the short time period during which the material is stressed, frequently one to a few hundred milliseconds, and c) the planar nature of the resultant sheet failure. Test results from this method may correlate with product failures of this type.
