Held in our newly refurbished and redecorated Testing Laboratory, the Board24 introduction to corrugated board testing techniques workshop gives an opportunity to learn more about the technical aspects of corrugated. Along with an element of tutorial, the workshop is hands on and practical. The knowledge gained should enhance overall understanding of the test methods and becoming more informed on the process to gain the results.
