Practice for Evaluation of Chemical Resistance of Printed Inks and Coatings on Flexible Packaging Materials
Overview for ASTM F2250:
ASTM F2250 is a practice that describes the procedure for evaluating the ability of an ink, overprint varnish, or coating to withstand chemical exposure. Examples of chemicals that may encounter printed inks and coatings include water, alcohol, acid, etc. The specific chemicals, method of choice, and the determination of measurement outcome are left to users to agree upon in joint discussion. Purple Diamond Testing offers this testing as part of our packaging compliance and validation services.
Rationale for ASTM F2250:
Practice for Evaluation of Chemical Resistance of Printed Inks and Coatings on Flexible Packaging Materials. Is intended to observe the measure, if any, of the degradation of printed inks and coatings with chemicals that it will or may encounter during its lifecycle. ASTM F2250 should not be tested with chemicals that are not compatible with the substrate. If there is any chance that your packaged product should or need to come in contact with certain chemicals such as ink, varnish, or coating, it is highly recommended to inquire about this specific test being done on-site at Purple Diamond. You can send in a sample of your packaged product and our packaging experts will provide the testing for you.
