Packaging testing is designed to assess the suitability of packaging materials intended to use for given products, including packaging materials, packaging components, primary packages, shipping containers, unit loads, as well as the associated processes. Alfa Chemistry is ISO 17025 accredited test laboratory that can provide world-class support to product developers, designers and manufacturers. Alfa Chemistry 's comprehensive packaging testing services ensure your products perform efficiently, safely and adequately in the end-user's hands. With much focus on the materials being used in the packaging of products, there is a continued demand for assessing the materials used in packaging. The assessments consist of chemical analysis such as cadmium, hexavalent chromium, lead, mercury testing regulated by EU Directive on Packaging and Packaging Waste (94/62/EC) and US Toxics in Packaging Clearinghouse (TPCH), mechanical properties, environmental impact, and how one material compares against others. A series of analysis for packaging and packaging materials can help optimize product performance, solve regulatory and food safety issues.
We provide expert insight and comprehensive solutions for food packaging, including packaging migration testing, sensory analysis, colour bleeding, resistance to saliva and perspiration, foreseeable use assessment, physical hazard assessment, overall product safety analysis, restricted substance testing like Bisphenol A, REACH SVHC, etc. based on various regulations and standards such as US FDA requirement and (EU) No. 10/2011 etc.
For transporting packaging, tests are carried out to determine how packaged products will perform under simulated conditions. Some of typical testing including:
Vibration testing - for both random and sinusoidal vibrations
Shock testing- to address unexpected impacts
Compression testing- to determine the strength of packaging and to ensure the safety of stacked loads
Side impact testing- for carton or palletized loading, unloading and shunting
Tilt testing- to evaluate product stability
Environmental stress testing-to evaluate the impact of temperature, humidity and thermal cycling
For medical and pharmaceutical packaging, we provide evaluation services including container closure integrity testing, accelerated aging, seal strength, leak detection and package performance/functionality tests based on the standards such as ASTM F1980, ASTM F1886, ASTM D4728, ASTM D4332, ASTM D1929, ASTM D5276, ASTM D6653, ISO11607, ASTM D1922, ASTM D3420, USP<1207>, USP<671>, ASTM D3985 and so on.
With professional qualification, experienced technical team and international advanced analytical instruments such as HPLC, LC-MS, GC-MS, ICP-OES, XRF, ICP-MS and so on. Our service concept is featured with fast turnaround time, accurate data, lower cost and better service. No matter what your concern is, we are always ready to help.
