TESTS ON FOOD PACKAGING, INDUSTRIAL PACKAGING, LUXURY PACKAGING, MEDICAL PACKAGING
The mechanical laboratory carries out tests to evaluate strength of materials in packaging to reveal any defects over time. Many tests may be offered including: • , pelability… • Compression • Charpy / Izod Impact according to NF EN ISO 179-2: Plastics - Determination of Charpy impact strenght - Part 1 : Non-instrumented impact test. The following checks can be performed: • Friction coefficients (slide film) according to NF T54-122: Plastics - Sheets - Determination of the slippage - Measuring of the friction coefficients • The tensile strength (in temperature) according to ISO 527: Plastics - Determination of tensile properties • Perforation Resistance according to NF XP T54-198 : Plastics - Industrial polymer-based films and sheets - Mono and multilayered films for packaging - Conventional test method for assessing the slow rate penetration resistance. • The opening force packages • Welding resistance according to - Sheets - Assessment of the quality of a weld or bond between two sheets elements by a means of a tensile test • The compressive strength of bottles • The screwing or unscrewing couple of bottles or screw system • The holding of the labels and checking the specifications of the tape for the shipping containers.
