Packaging

Compression Test

Compression tests are used to determine a material’s behavior under applied crushing loads, and are typically conducted by applying compressive pressure to a test specimen (usually of either a cuboid or cylindrical geometry) using platens or specialized fixtures on a universal testing machine.

Introduction to Concentrated Impact Test

Concentrated Impact Test is a type of transit testing that is performed to make sure a package can withstand the rigors and environment of the distribution cycle. It is one of the most widespread impact testing methods for measuring the protective capacity of packaging.

Packaging

Mechanical Handling Test

Mechanical handling refers to the use of machines and equipment to move, store, control, and protect materials, goods, and products throughout the process of manufacturing, distribution, consumption, and disposal. Mechanical handling tests are used to evaluate the ability of shipping units to withstand the stresses of manual and mechanical handling during the distribution process.

ASTM Packaging Standards

ASTM is one of the world's leading international quality organisations. The ASTM guidelines are an agreement between consumers, manufacturers, government agencies and scientists from over 140 countries on the implementation of packaging quality and testing requirements.

Packaging

Visual Inspection Testing

Visual Inspection Testing provides a qualitative visual inspection to evaluate the appearance characteristics of unopened, intact seals in order to determine the presence of defects that may affect the integrity of the package. ASTM F1886 covers the determination of channels in the package seal down to a width of 75 μm (0.003 in.) with a 60 – 100 % probability.

Real-Time Ageing Tests

Real-Time Ageing Tests are a great way to test the durability of a product. They can also be used to test how quickly an object will deteriorate, or even how long it takes for certain chemicals to break down. It's important that you follow all safety precautions when performing a real-time ageing test.

Packaging

Accelerated Ageing Tests

Accelerated ageing tests are essential in determining the expected lifespan of materials and products in a shorter period of time. These tests are conducted to simulate the natural ageing process under extreme conditions, such as high temperature and humidity, to predict the performance and durability of the materials and products.

Packaging

Integrity Testing

Integrity testing (also known as Sterile Barrier Integrity Testing) is a critical quality control measure used to ensure the integrity, or the ability of a package to contain and protect its contents. Integrity testing is used to detect any leaks, punctures, or other defects that can compromise the packaging and potentially lead to contamination or spoilage of the contents.

Packaging

Transport Simulation

Transport Simulation (also known as Transit Testing) is an essential process that ensures the quality and safety of products during transportation. It involves subjecting products to various tests to simulate the conditions they may encounter during transit. Transit testing is critical for companies that want to reduce the risk of damage, loss, and returns.

Packaging

Environmental Conditioning

Environmental Conditioning simulates particular field conditions that a package will encounter as part of the supply chain. ASTM D4332 is a standard practice for conditioning containers, packages, or packaging components for testing. Specifically, ASTM D4332 is designed for the package to experience simulated environmental conditioning before it is subjected to other testing. So, for example, the ASTM D4332 would be administered as a precursor to the ASTM D4169 test.
