Metropack, a certified and accredited laboratory, at the ISTA 2022 symposium, focused on studying the performance of stretch films and stretch packaging. This study emphasizes the importance of the ASTM D8314 standard, an essential reference in evaluating packaging materials.
The methodology adopted for this study involves the use of various testing apparatuses and configurations. Key parameters, such as sample dimensions and weight, as well as pre-stretching conditions, were carefully defined to ensure the accuracy and relevance of the results.
Results and Analysis
The obtained results provide a detailed overview of the practicality of various applied tests, such as the Pull Plate, Pull Bar, and Double Finger. Special attention was given to the impact of stretching, stretching speed, and relaxation time on the performance of the tested materials.
In conclusion, the study provides insights into the performance of stretch films and stretch packaging, highlighting the importance of the ASTM D8314 standard in the field. The presented results and analysis offer significant perspectives for the industry and guide future recommendations.
