Packaging Material Testing

Testing the materials that make up the package

To complement DDL’s Medical Device Packaging Testing, DDL’s Product and Materials Testing Division can take your package design and packaging testing to a deeper level by testing the materials that make up the package itself.  From plastic films to adhesives, foams to metals we can assist with your testing needs and help you better understand your options in packaging materials.  The effects of aging, different sterilization treatments and different material sources can all be explored through material testing.  DDL’s Product and Materials Division staff has a thorough understanding of today’s test standards for packaging materials which gives you a high confidence level in your packaging materials choices. 

Testing the materials that matter to you
