Rationale for ASTM D880:
Test Method for Impact Testing for Shipping Containers and Systems. Impacts are a common occurrence in all forms of shipping and using this method to evaluate your package’s ability to protect the inner contents is vital. This method is ideal for multiple types of containers ranging from flexible packaging to unitized loads and is also a part of the test procedure for ASTM D4169 – Practice for Performance Testing of Shipping Containers and Systems. Purple Diamond testing center has the right machinery and testing components in order to properly impact test shipping containers and their systems. It is important to call us before putting out the packaged product to the market. We need to verify the physical performance of the materials used in the packaging in order to withstand the impacts. We also need to validate the material selection during the shipment container box design initially. We have the chance to optimize costs by mitigating damages that me accrue through the transit process of the packaged product.
