    Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference articleScientific


    This research work presents recent results on the formability of paper-based materials. Different kinds of commercial paperboard samples were evaluated using a laboratory 2D - formability tester, and a 3D deep-drawing equipment. It was found that the appearance of the formed shapes and the performance of paperboard in the forming process have a correlation with certain mechanical properties of paper. This presents an interesting possibility for adjusting the mechanical properties of paper towards better formability
