SEAL STRENGTH is the
ability to resist forces that can separate materials that have been
sealed together. It may be a flexible surface from a rigid surface or
another flexible surface.
Seal strength tests are useful for
a variety of products and can be performed on containers such as
trays and packaging pouches as well as assessment of adhesive,
cosmetic and medical products such as surgical pouches and sterile
packaging. The most common tests are the T-peel, 90 degree peel and
the 180 degree peel but different peeling angles are possible.
Usually the average force per unit width and the peak force required
to separate either of these two surfaces is measured.
properties that can be obtained from a texture analysis graph:
Seal Strength, Initial Seal
Break Force, Maximum and Minimum Seal Strength Forces.
The above are only typical
examples of seal strength
measurement. We can, of course, design and manufacture probes or
fixtures that are bespoke to your sample and its specific measurement.
Once your measurement is
performed, our expertise in its graphical interpretation is
unparalleled no-one understands texture analysis like we do.
Not only can we develop the most suitable and accurate method for the
testing of your sample, but we can prepare analysis procedures that
obtain the desired parameters from your curve and drop them into a
spreadsheet or report designed around your requirements.
