December 17, 2018 – AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, has released Score Cracking: Causes, Characteristics, and Cures, a free whitepaper curated by AICC Corrugated Technical Advisor Ralph Young.

The free paper addresses score cracking, an issue faced by all corrugated converters. Besides containerboard and the combining processes, the paper also briefly focuses on die cutting and other finishing operations as contributors to, and possible cures for, score cracking and liner rupture.

“Score cracking or surface fiber disruption at die score at converting can always be an issue but particularly in colder northern plants. This whitepaper goes into the causes and remedies for cracking. It has been complied with the knowledge of a dozen other experts and had several peer reviews,” says Ralph Young, AICC Corrugated Technical Advisor.

Score Cracking is the second free AICC whitepaper released this year.
