Pallets are important to many industries, as most products are shipped on a pallet at some point in the manufacturing and sales process. If a pallet fails to provide a safe and stable platform, packaged products may be damaged, resulting in added costs. DDL tests pallets to make sure that they can hold and support full unit loads of products throughout the transit process.
Sutherland Rub Testing
Abrasion damage to printed materials can occur during shipment, storage, handling, or by the end user. This abrasion can result in significant degradation in product appearance and legibility of the product information. The legibility of printing on labels or other materials is very important for medical device and pharmaceutical products in particular.
The Sutherland Rub Test helps determine the amount of scuff or abrasion damage that may occur to printed materials during shipment, storage, or handling. This test procedure can simulate the effects of human use in continuous contact or dual surface abrasion in a variety of types.
“The addition of pallet testing and Sutherland Rub testing to our Irvine, CA lab reflects our commitment to offering our customers the best testing experience possible,” said Tamera Presler, General Manager, DDL. “These additional testing services will allow us to provide enhanced package testing services to our medical device and pharmaceutical customers located in California and the surrounding region.”
DDL now offers pallet testing at its CA, MN and NJ lab locations and Sutherland Rub Testing at its CA and MN locations.
