Packaging industry has many challenges to deal with and biggest of them all is dealing with environmental factors. Environment creates certain unavoidable situations that are very difficult to deal with. High temperature, severe cold conditions, humidity, rain and so on. Apart from keeping the content safe from any external factors, packing is responsible for making a product look good. As far as safety is concerned, seal integrity is very important factor to consider. Usually, adhesives are used to create bonds between two surfaces. And, we all know that the biggest enemy of adhesion is humidity.
How Humidity Affects Adhesion?
As percentage of humidity increases in an area, it has direct impact on the bonding strength of the packing. However, there are many other factors that contribute in affecting the bonding strength of a material. To assess the behavior of the seal when subjected to humid environment, conditions are simulated using environment chambers. Along with these chambers, adhesion strength tester is used to calculate the effect of environment on the seal strength. This test is also be called as peel strength test. Apart from analyzing the behavior of the seal in humid environments, it is performed to check the seal strength in general.
Presto’s Adhesion Strength Tester
Adhesion strength tester is a very useful instrument in testing of bonding strength of different packaging materials used in different industries. Different sealing materials like sensitive tapes, BOP tapes, resealable tapes, etc. can be tested. Using this instrument, the sealing strength can be easily and precisely be measured.
