Testing Packaging for Resiliency, Durability and Moisture Control
Packaging designers and manufacturers use AES environmental test chambers to test the resilience and durability of packaging materials in different temperature ranges and for moisture control. The main purpose of all packaging is to hold its contents securely to prevent leakage and breakage and to protect the contents from different hazards. Packaging includes paper and board (paper bags and cartons), rigid plastics, metal, plastic films, and polythene. Packaging is used in many different industries, such as food, pharmaceuticals, hard goods, soft goods, medical devices, dangerous goods, and so on. Packaging standards and regulations vary according to its use, so test requirements also vary.
