ASTM F1140 Primary Packaging Pressure Testing

Testing Standard:

ASTM F1140 Test Methods for Internal Pressurization Failure Resistance of Unrestrained Packages

Standard Number
ASTM F1140

Standard Title
Test Methods for Internal Pressurization Failure Resistance of Unrestrained Packages

Overview:

ASTM F1140 is a series of test methods that covers the failure resistance of unrestrained packages. This series of test methods consist of burst test, creep test, and creep to failure which all have determination of intended results. The burst test increasingly pressurizes the package until the package fails, while the creep test maintains a specified pressure for a specified amount of time or until the package fails. Purple Diamond Testing offers ASTM F1140 Testing as part of our packaging compliance and validation services.

Rationale:

ASTM F1140 – Test Methods for Internal Pressurization Failure Resistance of Unrestrained Packages. Its intended use is to provide a rapid means of evaluating tendencies for package failure when pressure is applied internally to the package. ASTM F1140 is usually conducted during the manufacturing process and at various stages of the package’s life cycle.
