ISTA 2A Packaged Products 150 lb or Less

ISTA 2A Packaged Products, Test Procedure 2A covers testing of individual packaged-products weighing 150 lb or less when prepared for shipment.

Testing Standard:

ISTA 2A Packaged Products Weighing 150 lb (68 kg) or Less or ISTA 2A Packaged Products

Standard Number
ISTA 2A

Standard Title
Packaged-Products 150 lb (68 kg) or Less

Overview for ISTA 2A Packaged Products:

ISTA 2A Packaged Products uses a combination of basic tests from ISTA 1 Series and advanced tests from ISTA 3 Series to conduct partial simulation performance test procedures. This procedure challenges the packaged products to withstand transport hazards. Can be used to evaluate packaged products intended for international distribution. Purple Diamond Testing offers ISTA 2A Testing as part of our packaging distribution testing services.

Rationale for ISTA 2A Packaged Products:

ISTA 2A Packaged-Products 150 lb. (68 kg) or Less. Can be used to compare relative performance of package and product design variations using atmospheric conditioning, compressive force, vibration on multiple orientations (random or fixed displacement), and shock tests (drop or incline impact). The procedure is used to create harsh worst-case hazards in a laboratory environment while comparing multiple design variation packaging systems. Is essentially a partial simulation test for individual packaged-products. The package and product will always be considered together, not separately during the Procedure ISTA 2A.
