Hydraulic Press turns roll of toilet paper to stone!

Posted by: Matt Wright on 11/18/2021

In YouTube videos far and wide all kinds of objects have died at the hands of the hydraulic press as it has clenched down and taken the lives of so many unsuspecting products. Just when you thought that the test couldn’t get any more obscure, along comes this one to really put the strength of the press on display.

No, we aren’t looking at any type of metal structure going against the press or something that you would expect to give great resistance but rather, a simple roll of toilet paper is put up against the press to see exactly what would happen. I take it that the goal at hand here is to crush this toiletry back into the wood that it originally came from.

With a test like this, you never really know what to expect and that’s what makes it so darn fun to watch. The suspense is on as the press gets to moving, grabbing the toilet paper and slowly pushing it down until it’s all out of juice and no more pressure can be applied.

The real payoff comes when the roll is removed from the press and shows off a surface that is not even close to resembling the original product that was placed under pressure. This is an interesting demonstration of just how pressure can work and what amazing things can happen under a full load on the press.
