Internal Pressurization Failure Resistance of Unrestrained Packages
ASTM F1140 Scope:
ASTM F1140 evaluates the response of flexible packaging subjected to internal pressure. The method is applicable to a variety of packaging sizes, shapes and seal configurations and may be performed at stages along the packaging life cycle. Packaging configurations options include open/closed and with/without the product. Three tests are outlined within ASTM F1140: Burst; Creep Test; and Creep to Failure.
Procedure is based on package configuration and method selected.
For the Open Package Test, an open package is inserted and clamped in the equipment.
For the Closed Package Test, a pressurization probe is inserted into a sealed package.
