Unsupported— Each tail of the specimen is secured in opposing grips and the seal remains unsupported while the test is being conducted. Evaluating how your products and services meet and exceed quality, safety, sustainability and performance standards. The values f8 in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.
Seal Strength ASTM F88
A series of seals at different sealing temperatures are made, using a machine employing hot-bar jaws. Auditing Consulting Sourcing Training. Seal strength is not only relevant to opening force and package integrity, but to measuring the packaging processes’ ability to produce consistent seals.
Send us a request Wilton UK: Each tail of the sealed specimen is secured in the opposing grips of a universal test bench. A curve can be plotted showing the effect of the sealing conditions mainly temperature on the seal force. Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes.
Through our network of over 43, people in 1, laboratories and offices in countries, Intertek provides quality and safety solutions to a wide range of industries around the world. Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. Seal strength at some minimum level is a necessary package requirement, and at times it is desirable to limit the strength of the seal to facilitate opening. Standards can be obtained from appropriate standard authorities.
Seal strength is the tensile strength of the seal at ambient temperature. Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 42, people in 1, locations in over countries. It also identifies the mode of specimen failure.
Assurance Testing Inspection Certification. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Examples of fixtures and techniques satm illustrated in Fig.
Formally confirming that your products and services meet all trusted external and internal standards.
At a certain temperatures a seal force level is reached which is related to the maximum tensile force of the film. Inspection Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. This curve is called the seal curve. Because the effect of astj of these on test results is varied, consistent use of one technique Technique A, Technique B, or Technique C throughout a test series is recommended. Need help or have a question?

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The maximum tensile force required to separate the two ends of the seal is recorded.
ASTM F88 / F88M – 09 Standard Test Method for Seal Strength of Flexible Barrier Materials
Assurance Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. It is the maximum force required to separate the two layers of a seal under particular conditions.
A number of fixtures and techniques have been devised to hold samples at various angles to the pull direction to control this bending force. A rectangular specimen is used; the specimen width may be either 25 mm, 15 mm or 1.
