Short-span compression test (SCT) for paper or board

SCT (short-span compression test) is one of the most commonly used testing methods for determining the compression strength of paper or cardboard. In this test, the sample is conditioned in standard conditions (23 °C/50% RH), after which the compression strength is measured in the machine direction (MD) and the cross direction (CD).
