Laboratory analysis of industrial packaging

Your needs : to verify that your packaging meets relevant standards and is compatible with the products it is designed to contain

Industrial packaging is designed to preserve, protect and conserve its contents. Packaging is essential for prolonging the lifespan of a product but is also a way of distinguishing different brands of the same type of product.

Industrial packaging can be made using different materials : cardboard, plastic, ceramic, glass, silicone…

Why analyze or inspect packaging ?

As part of strict environmental, regulatory, technical and marketing constraints, industrial manufacturers are confronted with important issues regarding the conformity of their packaging when putting a new product on the market.

In the food, cosmetics or pharmaceutical sectors, companies are required to ensure the safety and quality of their packaging, in order to avoid the risk of migrations or the oxidation of their packaging. The support of an analytical laboratory can provide viable results in order to evaluate the conformity and performance of packaging, according to the criteria of a scope statement and regulatory standards.
