What is package testing?

Package testing is a critical step in ensuring the safety and quality of products in industries like medical devices and consumer goods. This process focuses on the packaging’s ability to protect the product, which is essential for maintaining product quality. Standards like ISO 11607-1, ISTA, ASTM, and FDA guidelines are followed to ensure packaging can withstand various transportation and environmental conditions.

What are some of the common packaging test standards?

Common test standards, such as ISTA 6-FedEx A, ISTA 3A, and others, guide the testing of packaging to ensure it can protect products during shipping. These standards cover a range of tests, including durability and protection through parcel delivery systems, to ensure products arrive undamaged.

What kind of methods are used for package testing?

Various methods are used in package testing, including drop, vibration, and compression tests. Standards like ASTM D4169 for military specifications and ISTA 3A for transportation simulation are commonly used. These tests help determine the packaging’s ability to protect the product under different conditions.
