The packaging of a product is a corporate image symbol. In addition to ensuring the integrity and hygiene of the product and clearly indicating the various types of information of the product, it is easy to overlook the quality of the packaging itself. For product quality, a reduction in the quality of the package means a reduction in the overall quality of the product. Especially for food and pharmaceutical, the leachables in inferior packaging may directly pollute the product and threaten the safety of consumers, while the impact on the company is also incalculable. Therefore, in addition to ensuring the quality of the product itself, the inspection of the package is also very necessary.
In the ever-evolving environment, the evaluation criteria for packaging inspection are more and more strict and different industries have different requirements for packaging. Alfa Chemistry has rich experience in testing packaging and packaging materials. Our expert teams create personalized testing services for global clients, whether you want to make the packaging used by your products meet the standards or as a consumer wants to know whether the packaging of the purchased product is qualified, we can provide you with satisfactory services.
Alfa Chemistry's capabilities include:
? Barrier Performance: the main detection indicators include organic gas permeability, oxygen transmission rate, air permeability, water vapor transmission rate, etc.
? Physical and Mechanical Properties: a basic indicator for measuring the protection of contents in packaging, transportation, etc., including tensile strength, impact strength, friction coefficient, etc.
? Cushioning Performance: including dynamic impact, permanent deformation, anti-vibration, etc.
Extractables and leachables represent the organic or inorganic chemical compounds that are released from the surfaces of materials utilized in the manufacture and storage of goods under laboratory conditions. Leachables are typically, but not always, a subset of extractables. By performing extractables and leachables (ENL) testing, the harmful extractable and leachable impurities in the product mostly migrated from container closure or manufacturing systems and packaging can be identified and quantified.
Packaging coating is critical to maintain the security and integrity of the products during long distant transportation and long periods of storage, especially for food and pharmaceuticals. Plastic packaging and coated materials are widely used in foods and pharmaceuticals, which have a variety of packaging forms and are convenient to use in circulation. However, this procedure may cause impurities and thus should be identified and quantified to ensure the product's quality. Therefore, it is necessary to analyze plastic packaging and coated materials for any manufacturer who takes responsibility and purses excellence, as well as for the consumers who care for their own health and quality of life.
The use of pre-filled packaging can reduce the amount of overfilling, maximize product volume, while reducing the risk of contamination and human variables, saving some operational steps when used, and it has become a new packaging method for some pharmaceutical companies. Due to the particularity of the drug itself, rigorous analytical screening and quality control are required for pre-filled packaging.
Primary packaging represents the first packaging layer that contacts directly with the end products. The most important function of primary packaging is to protect products from damage, external interference or contamination and chemical imbalances. However, the primary packaging can be a main source of contamination in the product if the materials (especially the elastomer and plastic ancillary components) used for packaging are produced at a lower quality hygiene level. In this case, to eliminate all contamination risks, the raw materials used to produce primary packaging or the parts in direct contact with the product including stoppers, plungers, tips caps, seals, needles shields, pumps, tubes, bottles, and plastic should be strictly detected.
