IS0 (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide
federation of national standards bodies (IS0 member bodies). The work
of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through IS0
technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for
which a technical committee has been established has the right to be
represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental
and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. IS0
collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission
(I EC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.
Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are
circulated to the member bodies for voting. Publication as an International
Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting
a vote.
International Standard IS0 3037 was prepared by Technical Committee
ISOnC 6, Paper, board and pulps, Subcommittee SC 2, Test methods
and quality specifications for paper and board.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition (IS0 3037:1982),
of which it constitutes a technical revision.

IS0 3037: 1994(E)
A variety of methods for the determination of edgewise crush resistance
are in use in different parts of the world. These can be classified into three
groups as follows:
Those in which a carefully cut rectangular test piece is tested without
any special treatment or modification.
Those in which the edges of the test piece to which the force is ap-
plied are waxed to prevent the test result being influenced by “edge
effects “.
Those in which the test piece edges are not waxed but the shape of
the test piece is such that the length is substantially reduced at a point
midway between the loaded edges in order to induce the failure to
occur away from those edges.
The dimensions of the test piece vary from one group to the other and, in
group c), the methods vary in the shape and method of reducing the
length and in whether or not the test piece is held in a clamp during
The methods may not give the same numerical results, but it can be
shown that most of them can be used to predict the top-to-bottom com-
pression strength which will be achieved when the board is properly con-
verted into a transport package.
This International Standard describes a method from group a). It is in-
tended as a method for quality measurement and quality specification
purposes and is selected because it correlates with the top-to-bottom
compression strength of the final transport package and because it is the
simplest and most operationally convenient method, an important factor
when large numbers of tests need to be conducted. However, it does not
measure the actual intrinsic compressive strength of the corrugated
fibreboard, giving lower results than most of the methods of groups b) and
c). This systematic difference is due to edge effects.
Other methods may be used for other purposes, particularly when the
object of the test is to study fundamental structural characteristics of the
There are methods available for calculating the edgewise crush resistance
from the compression strength of the component papers.
