Paper Board/Box Testing at IPST has over 5600 square feet of lab space dedicated to address any paper, board, corrugated board/box and specialty product testing needs in areas of strength, optical, surface, and structural properties. In addition to a full complement of conventional Tappi method testing capabilities, the Paper Testing group can provide special services in the areas of environmental simulations and accelerated aging. Synergistic collaboration with IPST Chemical Analysis labs provides an unparalleled trouble-shooting capability to address any industry quality or production issue. Three large walk-in environmental chambers cover high and low temperature and humidity conditions. Unique capabilities include:
The results from the IPST Paper Analysis Laboratory have been validated through IPST active participation in the Collaborative Testing Services Inc., and PAPRICAN Paper and Pulp Monitor programs. Along with routine internal checks using calibration standards, this ensures that the equipment, methods and results are consistent with correct industry practice.
Each contract is concluded with the issue of a formal report of measurements and analyses/graphs/interpretation via e-mail. Typical turn-around time for projects is 5 business days from receiving samples. Projects are initiated through contact with the IPST lab manager. A PO number or billable credit information sent through e-mail to Roman.email@example.com will get a project going.
