ASTM's paper and packaging standards are instrumental in the evaluation and testing of the physical, mechanical, and chemical properties of various pulp, paper, and paperboard materials that are processed primarily to make containers, shipping boxes and parcels, and other packaging and labeling products. These standards help to identify characteristics such as chemical content, acidity or alkalinity, tensile breaking strength, peel adhesion, and water, oil, and tear resistance among others. Also, these paper and packaging standards help papermaking plants, packaging and shipping companies, and other producers and end-users of paper materials and products in the proper processing and assessment procedures to ensure their quality towards efficient commercial use.
Ventilation of many materials is improved by using cut out holes (standard perforating) or the tiny pin holes known as Micro Venting or Porolating. Today, perforations are used for acoustical treatments on aircraft, automobiles, building design, and wherever sound decibel levels need to be reduced. IPS has the expertise in perforating of woven and non-woven cloth and paper, thin-gauge metal foil, plastic, leather hides, wall covering, wood veneer, vinyl products, and we even perforate cinema screens. The automotive, fashion, furniture, graphic arts, movie screen, medical, aerospace, and commercial industries all benefit from perforations. The possibilities are endless! We are exited to announce we now have available- 102″ wide perforating capability!
