Standard Number
ASTM F2250

Standard Title
Practice for Evaluation of Chemical Resistance of Printed Inks and Coatings on Flexible Packaging Materials

Overview:

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 ASTM F2250 Testing as part of our packaging compliance and validation services.

Rationale:

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.
