Types of Testing:

Material Testing:

Material tests are designed to confirm that the corrugated mterial components (liners and medium), are within specifications. All tests are performed under controlled conditions (50% ± 2% RH and 73 ± 2°F) in accordance with TAPPI (T-402). Material tests help to ensure the right material is being used for each specific application.

Being ISTA 1A and 1B certified allows us to perform all the tests necessary to best protect against product damage. These tests can influence the gauge and strength of materials used, ensuring maximum protection with optimal cost efficiencies.
