DIN 53142

The puncture test measures the energy required to puncture corrugated board. In the puncture test to DIN 53142-2, the use of a pyramid puncture head causes the material to be loaded in all spatial directions. During this process, combined tensile, compression, flexural and shear forces occur. The result obtained in this test is the energy absorbed in puncturing the material. A materials testing machine is used for this test.
