Paper -- Determination of folding endurance
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2015. Therefore this version remains current.
Specifies the methods for the determination of folding endurance of paper using Köhler-Molin, Lhomargy, MIT and Schopper testers. The principle of the methods is folding backwards and forwards in a standardized manner of a narrow strip of paper subjected to a longitudinal stress, until it breaks. The Köhler-Molin, Lhomargy and Schopper methods are applicable to paper of thicknesses up to 0,25 mm thick and having a tensile strength greater than 1,33 kN/m. The MIT tester has interchangeable folding heads allowing a range of thicknesses up to 1,25 mm.
