Test Method for Detecting Gross Leaks in Packaging by Internal Pressurization (Bubble Test)
Overview for ASTM F2096:
ASTM F2096 is a test method that covers the detection of gross leaks in packaging where the method sensitivity is down to 250 μm. This test method is considered destructive due to the requirement of an entry into the package to supply internal air pressure. Purple Diamond Testing offers this testing as part of our packaging compliance and validation services.
Rationale for ASTM F2096:
Test Method for Detecting Gross Leaks in Packaging by Internal Pressurization (Bubble Test). Is a practical way to examine packages for gross leaks and is extremely useful in a test laboratory environment where there is no common package material or size. ASTM F2096 is usually conducted during the manufacturing process and at various stages of the package’s life cycle. The test itself is considered a highly sensitive way to see the depth and size of a potential leak that may be in the packaging. Ultimately, this kind of practicality will save you thousands of dollars in the long run. If there is any kind of leak in any of your packaging, you want to get it taken care of before your whole product line is put out on the market. We recommend inquiring if you need your package checked for leaks.
