This test gives an evaluation of the rheological behavior of packaging materials, and it is crucial for developing new packaging materials and their internal structures.
We can measure the intrinsic viscosity, melt viscosity, and relative viscosity of materials which are all dynamically related to melt flow during processing. And our Viscometer determines the measure of viscosity for a lab specimen for a specific flow condition
Rheology is the study of flow and deformation of materials. Deformation and flow are referred to as strain or strain rate, respectively, and indicate the distance over which a body moves under the influence of an external force, or stress. For this reason, rheology is also considered to be the study of stress-strain relationships in materials.
Package materials testing, as well as package evaluation and testing, are important parts of the research and development process. Testing helps ensure that new primary packaging materials and package designs are created specifically to handle real-world situations.
More than 30,000 people from 150 countries create and update standards through ASTM International, one of the world’s most respected standards development organizations. The high quality of ASTM International standards is driven by the expertise and judgment of members who represent industry, governments, academia, trade groups, consumers, and others. Their contributions are why ASTM International standards are known for high quality and market relevance across many industries. About 150 committees (with over 2,000 subcommittees) meet face-to-face and virtually, using tools like electronic balloting and online collaboration areas, to develop standards. ASTM International publishes those standards shortly thereafter
International Standards make things work. They give world-class specifications for products, services and systems, to ensure quality, safety and efficiency. They are instrumental in facilitating international trade. ISO has published 22204 International Standards and related documents, covering almost every industry, from technology, to food safety, to agriculture and healthcare. ISO International Standards impact everyone, everywhere. ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 161 national standards bodies. Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based, market relevant International Standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges.
The International Safe Transit Association (ISTA) is a global alliance of shippers, carriers, suppliers, testing laboratories, and educational and research institutions focused on the specific concerns of transport packaging. We help our members control costs, damage, and resources during the distribution of packaged-products by creating and publishing laboratory preshipment testing Procedures, certifying Packaging Laboratories, certifying Packaging Laboratory Professionals, certifying packaged-products and providing education, training, and support.
