Some key laboratory testing and analytical services for packaging
Performance testing of films and flexible packaging
The advanced OTR, WVTR and CO2TR Barrier Calculators with several features where you can select between different geometries; film, cup, bottle and cuboid. This enables you to simulate your target package design. The calculating models gives you estimates of the O2 (oxygen), Water Vapour and CO2 Transmission Rate of various plastics packaging material like PP, PE, PET, PA and EVOH.
Blow moulding has an untapped potential for using recycled materials. How can we manufacture bottles with a high percentage of recycled materials that are strong, durable, and fit for further recycling?
Sustainability has always been a key aspect of packaging, but the importance has never been higher. Our barrier online calculator can be a very useful tool in development and implementation of more sustainable solutions.
