Food Packaging Testing
Quantify material properties of packaging, including peel and tensile strength with the TA.XTPlus and TA.HDPlus.
How do you measure the performance of your food packaging? We can help.
For over 25 years, we have helped consumer packaged goods and food products companies determine the tensile strength and other properties of their food packaging materials. In fact, our texture measurement instruments are perfect for food packaging materials analysis, capable of measuring breaking stress, seal strength, peel strength, adhesiveness, burst strength, elasticity, tensile strength, dynamic shear and other properties for food packaging and adhesive materials.
Most textural analysis parameters can be easily quantified with the TA.XTPlus or TA.HDPlus Texture Analyzers and Exponent software program. To accomplish this, we have developed a number of probes and fixtures specific to testing food packaging materials including classic tensile testing, friction sled rigs, blister pack testing, 2-clamp hold-down rigs, advance tensile testing, custom peel rigs, 90-degree packaging peel, 4-clamp hold-down rigs, custom peel rigs with inserts, lid peel seam testing, film strength and flexibility testing, floating peel rigs, loop tack fixtures, and more.
The effectiveness of food packaging is commonly evaluated by shelf life tests on the food products that are pacakged. Our instruments and test methods can brilliantly detect subtle changes that can be atributed to packaging differences. Whether it is the brittleness of snack products of the shelf life of baked goods, our instruments can be deployed with test methods that are perfect for evaluating the performance of your packaging
