Package Testing

Package testing or packaging testing involves the measurement of a characteristic involved with packaging. This includes packaging materials, packaging components, primary packages, shipping containers, and unit loads, as well as the associated processes. Testing measures the effects and interactions of the levels of packaging, the package contents, external forces, and end-use. Either it ASTM D 4169, ISO 11607 and ISTA test protocols for both palatalized and loose package freight environments, Test-O-Pac is fully capable to accommodate your package testing needs!

Conditioning Containers or Packages for Testing

To provide standard and special conditioning and testing atmospheres that may be used to simulate particular field conditions that package may encounter during its life or testing cycle.

Drop Test of Loaded Container by Free Fall

This test method is intended for use in evaluating the capability of a container to withstand the sudden shock resulting from a free fall, or to evaluate the capability of a container and its...

Repetitive Shock Test (Rotary Motion)
Exposure to vibration can affect the shipping container, its interior packaging, means of closure, and contents. These tests allow analysis of the interaction of these components.
Warehouse & Vechicle Stacking
This test method is intended to determine the ability of the shipping unit to withstand the compressive loads that occur during warehouse storage or vehicle transport.
Effects of High Altitude on Packaging Systems
This test method determine the effects of pressure differential when packaged products are transported via certain modes of transport, such as aircraft or by ground over mountain passes.
Vibration Testing of Shipping Containers
This test method may be used to assess the performance of a container with its interior packing in terms of its ruggedness and the protection that it provides when subjected to random vibration.
Programmed Horizontal Impacts

This test method covers the procedures for reproducing shock damage, such as that which may result from rail switching or pallet marshaling impacts, using an incline impact tester.

Concentrated Impacts to Transport Packages

This test method is for testing complete filled transport packages for resistance against concentrated low-level impacts typical of those encountered in the distribution environment.
