Overview for TAPPI T802 Shipping Container Drop Test:

TAPPI T802 Test Method is essential when validating a box design to ensure the outer and inner packaging (cushioning) adequately protects the inner contents throughout the distribution cycle. Purple Diamond Testing offers TAPPI T802 Drop Test for Fiberboard Shipping Containers as part of our packaging compliance and validation services.

Rationale for TAPPI T802 Shipping Container Drop Test:

TAPPI T802 – Drop Test for Fiberboard Shipping Containers. This test method evaluates the fiberboard shipper and inner cushioning’s ability to protect the inner contents when shipped through the normal distribution chain by way of free fall drops. The shipper is dropped from a predetermined height based on weight, multiple times, before a full inspection for damage is conducted. Testing multiple configurations allows for verification of design and identification of potential flaws that would require change. Applying this method will ultimately result in less damage caused during transit.
