Test the materials that make up your package.
To compliment DDL’s Medical Device Packaging Testing, DDL’s Product and Materials Division can take your package design testing to a deeper level by testing the materials that make up the package itself. From tensile and tear testing of poly films and trays to compression and bending of packaging components, materials testing at DDL can help you better understand your options and will allow you to make more informed decisions on your packaging materials.
Processing variables, proposed vendor changes, effects of aging, different sterilization treatments and different material sources can all be explored through material testing. The engineering and technical staff at DDL’s Product and Materials Division has a thorough understanding of today’s test standards and provides reports with accurate results which give you a high confidence level in your important, packaging materials choices.
DDL can test to ASTM, ISO, TAPPI, military and other recognized industry standards. DDL can also help you create test protocols and custom test methods specific to your needs.
