Package Testing Lab
Package testing is performed on a variety of parcels to assure the package integrity and provide product protection during transit and its end-use environment. The term “package test” is a generic term which relates to a large variety of testing methods. Each method, however, simulates conditions that a package may experience. Due to the large variety of shipping methods available, the required test methods are broken down into several categories. These categories can be based on size, weight, type of container and different types of environmental conditions.
Our package testing lab is equipped to perform a large variety of ISTA testing
and ASTM testing
standards. Some the common testing standards include ASTM D4169 and D7386 and ISTA 3A, 3B, 7D and 7E. There is a major distinction between different types of package testing based on whether the simulated conditions consist of static or active environments.
A static environment typically consists of environments where the products do not physically move during the test. The package is tested with and without product under different temperature and humidity conditions.
An active environment, by contrast to static, would consist of tests such as vibration, shock, drop and compression testing where the package is physically stressed to simulate real-world conditions the package could be exposed to during transit in order to test package integrity.
