The RISE institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner for businesses and society.
During 2017 will be one of several websites within RISE. Please visit for more information about RISE.

Failure mechanics and runnability

A web break is a costly event which every paper manufacturer and converter wants to avoid. For a long time, there was no method for measuring a paper property related to web breaks. However, Innventia has now developed a method based on classic fracture mechanics which is currently being developed into an ISO standard.

A method for classifying runnability

This method makes it possible to classify paper products from a runnability point of view. It can also be used as a tool for developing paper materials which are less sensitive to defects, which means that the runnability of a paper material can be improved.
