TAPPI Testing

Tappi Test Methods | Box Package Testing | Micom Laboratories

Micom offers a wide range of TAPPI testing services on corrugated board.  As an active ISTA  Micom strives to offer its customers the most comprehensive array of test services related to package testing; this is the reason why we also offer TAPPI testing.  Testing to the TAPPI standards helps our customers investigate field failures they have to contend with.  Distribution is a complex environment and it is not always easy to decipher whether the problem lies with the carrier, the packaging method, a “weak” content or sub-standard packaging materials.  This is where having TAPPI testing services at hand comes in as a powerful source of information to ensure that your corrugate performance is what its specifications claim.
