What is meant by “compression conditioning”?
"Compression conditioning" is not a compression performance test, in other words it is not intended to result in a pass or fail. It is also nt intended as a predictor of warehouse or vehicle stacking capability - the maximum force to be applied is only 750 pounds (3300 N) for even the largest and heaviest of packaged-products. Instead, its purpose is to condition the specimen prior to performing vibration and shock/impact tests. It might be compared to atmospheric (temperature and humidity) pre-conditioning before a test.
