Packaging Testing Solutions from ADMET

Whether you need to measure the compressive load capacity of egg cartons or the seal strength of sterilized medical pouches, ADMET materials testing systems are ideal for determining the mechanical properties of package containers, components, and materials. We have worked with hundreds of customers who test packaging in medical, transportation, food, and retail applications.

All of our systems are capable of performing constant-rate-travel, ramp to hold load and cyclic tests and exceed ASTM E4 force accuracy requirements.  ADMET offers a full range of testing machines, fixtures, controllers, software, environmental chambers and baths to perform compression, tension, peel, seal, and fatigue tests to ASTM and ISO standards on:

  • Paper and carton packaging
  • Film stretch wrap and laminates
  • Foam molds and inserts
  • Cushioning and loose fill packaging
  • Textile packaging
  • Plastic boxes and containers
  • Adhesives, tapes, and straps
  • Metal canisters and casings
  • Seals, buckles, and fasteners
  • Wood crates
  • Pouches and bags
  • Biodegradable packaging
  • Recycled packaging
  • Medical and pharmaceutical packaging
  • And much more

Virtually all of our testing systems are capable of performing multiple mechanical tests on packaging products. The sample size and force capacity of your packaging as well as your analysis and reporting requirements will determine which ADMET testing system is correct for your application. We will customize any system to satisfy special load, speed, and fixturing requirements.

Common testing standards for packaging include:

ASTM D642 Test Method for Determining Compressive Resistance of Shipping Containers

Package Freshness Seal Peel Strength Test

Bucket Compression Test
