Positive test results for Palcut's Antim paper

A renowned German testing facility shows positive test results for Palcut's anti-slip paper
Palcut supplies anti-slip paper for stabilising finished products stacked on pallets. This ensures the best possible transport of the goods – both during internal transport by truck within the warehouse facilities, and externally by lorries and other means of transportation.
Palcut's anti-slip paper, Antim®, is available as both pre-cut sheets and in rolls for cutting. The anti-slip paper is available in all sizes to suit the relevant packaging/production line. Antim® paper has an extremely high friction coefficient. The advantage of this is that a pallet of finished products can be tilted at an angle of up to 50° without the goods falling off the pallet. The increased stability of the goods placed on Antim® interlayer sheets is also very noticeable during transport, where the pallet remains stable in the event of poor and uneven roads and hard braking.
Recently, Palcut asked a renowned testing facility in Germany to test the friction coefficient of its anti-slip paper, Antim65® and Antim Light®, which is used as interlayer sheets on pallets. The results were very positive.
The Antim65® paper has a friction coefficient of 0.92 for 110g/m2 Antim65® paper when placed on polished steel, which is the reference in this kind of test. The measurement is a so-called dynamic test that corresponds to a transport situation.
This is a good result, especially when compared to a standard rough cardboard box with a friction coefficient of about 0.4, and 0.1-0.2 for a smooth bag of animal feed, for example, placed on the same polished steel sheet.
"The test clearly shows that our Antim® anti-slip paper has a positive effect on palletisation and pallet stability. We are not just saying that," says Lars Østergaard Jonasen, Product Manager at Palcut.
