Packaging Materials Testing
Packaging is considered to be one of the best means to protect the quality of packaging products, and it also helps to present the products perfectly in front of buyers and customers. Reliable packing is an integral part of product supply. The mechanical strength, air permeability and sealing ability of the packaging materials determine whether the packaging materials are suitable for the intended use. Therefore, it is necessary to determine the characteristics of the packaging material in order to select the appropriate material for any product. In addition, it is also important to study the chemical stability of packaging materials, especially when they are used in food applications to ensure the safety of products. More importantly, packaging material testing ensures that the product is protected from packaging damage or degradation during transportation and distribution. These types of tests can also help reduce packaging costs by determining the level of protection required and reducing the necessary quantity of packaging materials.
Testing range of packaging materials:

Testing of Migration from Packaging Material
Why choose T,CA & Lab?
- Use the corresponding detection method
- Testing items are comprehensive
- Perfect testing records
The packaging materials used by different products are different, and some packaging also need other auxiliary materials, if the quality testing is carried out in accordance with the unified method, this is obviously not feasible. Therefore, when testing the packaging materials, it is necessary to select the corresponding testing method according to the material type of the tested object.
The testing items for each packaging material are not single. When testing packaging materials, a detailed testing plan should be formulated according to the type of material to ensure comprehensive testing and avoid missed testing and false testing.
When testing packaging materials, our staff need to make test records along with the test items to ensure that the test behavior is traceable. When there is any objection to the test results, it can be traced back according to the test records.
