Pulp and Paper Testing
Smurfit-Stone’s research and development department provides a wide range of pulp and paper testing and instruction. This includes testing methods, fundamentals, and training in the dissemination of the latest testing developments to our employees, and more importantly our customers.
By benchmarking data in specific areas we obtain comparative data about the physical properties of our various pulp and paper products. By doing so we are able to better understand our products and recognize fundamental factors that influence board and box performance.
At Smurfit-Stone we also understand that products are rarely used within their ideal environmental conditions. To provide support for these unknown environments we evaluate packaging to see how it will react to a change.
Our testing facilities enable us to evaluate these products in a wide range of temperatures and humidity levels. A wide array of performance tests to understand the effects of these environments are conducts.
