Preventing transport damage with expert package testing

Do you want packaging which gives your products optimum protection from external forces? So do we. This is why we use transport simulations based on scientifically-recognized standards for packaging testing in our certified DUO LAB Technology Centre. Our in-house testing evaluates accelerations, braking, cornering, uneven surfaces and loading during transport. In addition to this are the factors affecting the material during the handling process. Another feature of our testing system is the simulation of various environmental conditions. Contact us if you’d like to find the best packaging and pallet securement for your distribution operation, or if you have already experienced problems during the logistics process. Together, we’ll find the ideal solution to ensure your product arrives safely.

Packaging optimization: analysis of the package and the logistics process

Packaging is as individual as the product inside the package. The same applies to distribution channels. Only expert analysis of all factors in the system enables the development of individual packaging solutions which not only protect the product, but are also efficient from a cost and sustainability perspective. Our DUO LAB Technology Centre can draw on the expert knowledge of freight forwarders, distributors, technical experts, logistics centres and testing institutes. And we place all this know-how at the disposal of your company. Aided by state-of-the-art testing systems, we will create and evaluate complete loading and transport securement concepts for you.

Package testing services for cost-effective product packaging solutions

The test parameters are derived from the requirements for the packaged products, the packaging process and securement of the unit loads. Taking the individual and legal requirements into account, a combination of these parameters form the specific loads which may occur during packaging, storage and transport.

Package testing in the DUO LAB – based on strict scientific standards – guarantees you valid results and conclusions for the development of a cost-effective packaging design. We look forward to testing, analysing, simulating and optimizing your packaging and distribution system with you.

Only accredited laboratories can ensure reliable results and conclusions for package testing and unit load securement

The DUO LAB Technology Centre is officially accredited for package testing by the German accreditation body DAkkS (PL-19044). Our accreditation to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2018 means our product testing is according to nationally and internationally-recognized standards, that we adhere to standardized scientific processes, and that our testing is supervised by the government. This means we are also authorized to issue officially-recognized certificates and test protocols. So DUO LAB is not only able to offer its customers valid test results for optimizing packaging processes, but also documents which will stand up in a court of law. Benefit from the expertise available from DUO LAB, one of the few independent packaging testing laboratories in the field of transport simulation, handling and temperature testing.

Testing of food wraps by our in-house testing laboratory

Regular testing of the films by our in-house testing laboratory is a further safety factor in terms of quality and hygiene, guaranteeing you maximum protection for your products. Our food films are extremely stretchable. At the same time, they have high puncture and tear resistance in all directions, so that the product is optimally protected during transport and storage. Excellent transport safety is also ensured by the outstanding retention forces of the film and an absolutely smooth outer surface. This prevents the foiled products from sticking to each other during transport.

PE films food safe in direct contact

Food films that come into direct contact with food are subject to particularly strict requirements. Our DUO FOOD CONTACT stretch film is certified with regard to food safety. It complies with EU regulations for direct contact with food (EU Regulation No. 10/2011). The declaration of conformity from an accredited testing institute is available. Our PE films are thus suitable as primary packaging for all types of food and are also used in the packaging of raw materials for food production. The quality of our special body wrapping films made of pure polyethylene (PE) is far above that of conventional cling films.

Versions

  • Film thickness 12, 15, 17, 20 or 23 µm, adhesion inside or outside
  • machine or hand rolls
  • with or without double edge
