In addition to distribution simulation, package integrity and package strength, ISO 11607-1 states the need for manufacturers to ensure that the materials used in a package’s design comply to established physical properties. To complement its packaging testing, DDL’s Product & Materials Division takes design understanding to a deeper level by testing and evaluating the materials that make up the package itself. From tensile and tear testing of poly films and trays to applying compression and tension to packaging components materials testing can increase a packaging engineer’s understanding of available options, allowing for more informed design decisions.
