Technical analysis

Technical analysis

Analysis of the technical characteristics of flexible packaging saves time to the production process, by avoiding unnecessary and time-consuming trials on the machine. Its main role is to predict the behavior of the packaging material on the machine and provide guidelines to the operators.

Technical analysis is also applied for troubleshooting and specifies the quality of the final packaging material.

Our laboratory focuses on packaging testing and performs the below test methods to flexible packaging material and final packages.

Bond strength (ASTM F 904)
Tensile testing (ASTM D 882)
Tearing resistance (ASTM D1938)
Seal strength testing (ASTM F 88)
Coefficient of Friction testing (CoF) (ASTM D 1894)
Oxygen transmittion rate (OTR) (ASTM D 3985)
Water vapor transmition rate (WVTR) (ASTM F 1249)

The aforementioned test methods are only a sample of what we are able to offer. The laboratory develops new methods or alternative to the existing, when necessary. Please contact us for further inquiries.
