Medical packaging

Products from the medical engineering and pharmaceutical industry must be packaged safely, and product safety must also be guaranteed for products that are stored for a long period of time.

Important tests in the area of medical packaging

Peel and blister packaging
The ability to peel off dimensionally stable or rigid packaging depends on material combinations, machine parameters, and on sealed seam and tear-off geometries. The most important value is the cracking force, but the regularity of the sealing is also significant. Peel forces can be tested with a special peel test kit.
