ASTM F Standard: Creep Burst Tester With Open & Closed Package Test Fixtures
Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 42, people in 1, locations in over countries. Position 1 Note 1: Creep Test -Determines package strength by pressurizing a package at a set percentage of the known burst pressure for a fixed amount of time.
It is regularly used to assess packages during the manufacturing process and at various stages of the package life cycle. Need help or have a question? In the Burst Testair is introduced into the package at a predetermined pressure and flow rate. ASTM F testing provides a rapid means of evaluating tendencies for package failure when the package is exposed to a pressure differential.
Position 2 Adtm 3: Burst Test -Determines package strength by pressurizing a package until it bursts. Because air escapes through the walls of a porous package during inflation, the flow rate must be increased to compensate for the lost air through the walls and create the back pressure in the astj package. The porosity or lack thereof of the package material determines the inflation rate for the burst test.
The sample is inserted in the test clamp and is left untouched during testing, but supported underneath.
This technique limits curling of the pouch, which may affect test results. This technique requires training for repeatability.
For more information visit www. The method is applicable to a variety of packaging sizes, shapes and seal configurations and may be performed at stages along the packaging life cycle. If correlations between pieces of test equipment are to be made, it is vital that all parameters of the test method be exactly the same. ASTM F testing is comprised of the following: The sample is inserted in the test clamp and is held firmly enough to keep the package horizontal, sealed and straight during inflation without putting undue preassure on the seal.

Evaluating how your products and services awtm and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards. Typical parameters of ASTM F testing may include, but are not limited to, package size, material, seal configuration, test equipment, rate of air flow into the package, sensitivity machine response to pressure dropand position of test article.

Standards can be obtained from appropriate standards authorities. Whether your business is local or global, we can ensure your products meet quality, health, environmental, safety, and social accountability standards for virtually any market around the world. Procedure is based on package configuration and method selected.
ASTM F evaluates the response of flexible packaging subjected to internal pressure. The sample is inserted in the test clamp and is left unsupported and untouched during testing. Assurance Testing Inspection Certification. Pressure differentials may occur during processes such as sterilization and transportation. Position 2 Note 2: For the Astn Package Test, an open package is inserted and clamped in the equipment. Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards.
Certification Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards. Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes.
The Creep Test provides a test for slow shear of the adhesive bond similar to a dead weight hanging on the seal. Through our network of over 43, people in 1, laboratories and offices in countries, Intertek provides quality and safety solutions to a wide range of industries around the world.
Burst; Creep Test; and Creep to Failure. Intertek expands film and flexible packaging material characterization. This pressure creates the force needed to rupture the seal.
