Materials Testing

Testing the Materials from which the Package is Made

To complement its packaging testing, DDL’s Product & Materials Division takes design understanding to a deeper level by testing and evaluating the materials that make up the package itself.  From tensile and tear testing of poly films and trays to applying compression and tension to packaging components materials testing can increase a packaging engineer’s understanding of available options, allowing for more informed design decisions.

Processing variables, vendor changes, effects of aging, different sterilization treatments and material changes can be explored through material testing.  The engineering staff within DDL’s Product & Materials Division has a thorough understanding of today’s test standards and the principles behind them.
