Peel test

Peel test

Seals are vital to many types of food packaging; however, the role of the seal will differ from one product to another. Depending on the type of package, it may need to have mechanical strength or hermetic integrity, or be easy to open. When designing new pack formats during product development, it is particularly important to keep food safety/integrity in mind. It is also vital to know how seal strength may alter over time or during/after distribution.

At Campden BRI, as part of our transit testing services, we have the equipment to measure the seal strength of a range of pack formats, including pouches, bags, pots and trays. The equipment is capable of running at different speeds during a test cycle so that it can replicate human opening.

This is one of a suite of packaging strength methods available from Campden BRI related to transit testing or distribution chain testing.
