Analytical & Testing
Both analytical and physical testing for flexible packaging
We are integrating environmentally responsible materials into our packaging solutions that meet functional packaging requirements.
Our Analytical and Testing Services lab combines physical testing to simulate real life use of the packaging. From filling, to transportation, to distribution. We can also measure shelf life and consumer end use, with analytical testing - to develop molecular structures that meet the packaging functionality requirements throughout its entire life cycle.
Designing packaging for sustainability and functionality.
Thanks to our state-of-the-art equipment and technology, we can develop unique and innovative packages that offer greater utility and function. We conduct a wide variety of analytical and physical testing such as:
- Gas permeation
- Seal strength
- Chemical identification
- Aging and shelf-life studies
- Environmental storage
- Stiffness and filled package trial
- Package prototyping
- Transportation and abuse
And many more!
Looking at the entire life cycle of a package, we have a broad understanding of its environmental impacts.
In our lab, we also look at the environmental impacts associated with every stage of a product’s life, from extraction of raw material and manufacturing to transportation and disposal at end-of-life, to gain a comprehensive environmental viewpoint.
We produce life cycle assessments (LCA) and use them to improve processes and products, reduce waste, and inform decisions. LCAs give quantitative evidence to support design choices with the most environmentally significant effects across the product life cycle.
Our customized reports include summary, descriptive, and graphic results on comparative environmental impacts of packaging scenarios assessed.Contact us to learn more!
