Strength Test

The tensile test – This is the force needed to pull the seal apart ensuring it can withstand the conditions while being transported to various areas.

Drop test – The package is dropped from a certain level of high ground to ensure durability.

Moisture Barrier Test

In the moisture barrier test two methods are used mainly;

Gravimetric method where measures the weight of the package from time to time in different humidity conditions to help determine the moisture ingress while in the calcium chloride test, the chloride is placed inside the package to measure the amount of moisture absorbed.
