Environmental Conditioning Testing

In today’s worldwide markets, packaged-products are likely to be shipped through a diverse array of climates. Environmental condition testing is important in helping to develop packaging that can withstand various temperatures and humidity levels – and more importantly the rapid and constant changing of these variables.

Our environmental control equipment can replicate various temperatures and humidity levels so that packages and their components can be studied for durability in all conditions.
