Flexible films are widely used in packaging due to their ability to conform to the shape of the product being packaged and they provide excellent barrier properties. These packaging materials are commonly used in food packaging to protect the contents from contamination, moisture, and other environmental factors. But do you know that these packaging films should be tested for their quality before making a final product delivery? Thus, to make sure that your flexible film packaging material will not get damaged under the stresses of handling and transportation, it is important for packaging manufacturers to test them with the right flexible film testing instruments.

Testronix offers high-quality flexible film testing instruments that are designed to test the quality of flexible films and ensure that they do not get damaged while delivering products to customers. In this blog, we are going to provide you with information about testing the quality of flexible films with Testronix Quality Lab Testing Instruments. Let us discuss a brief about flexible film testing and why it is important.

Role of flexible films in the packaging

If we talk about flexible films then these are a type of packaging material that is used in a variety of applications. This amazing packaging material can be used for different applications including food packaging, medical products, and industrial products. This is because they offer a wide variety of benefits and have barrier-related properties that make it the top choice for packaging manufacturers.

Thus, it is important to test these flexible films to determine the shelf-life of packaged products under various conditions, such as temperature and humidity. This ensures that the film performs as expected and provides the necessary protection for the product. You can read about the need of testing flexible film packaging materials.

In summary, testing flexible packaging films is important to ensure that they meet the required quality and safety standards and perform as expected. This will help to ensure that quality materials will be delivered to the customers.

Now, let us discuss more the importance of testing the quality of flexible packaging films.

Importance of testing the flexible packaging films before delivery

Flexible films are used in a variety of industries for a multitude of purposes. It is important to test these films to ensure that they meet the specific needs of each customer. By testing the flexibility, adhesive properties, clarity, and ease of use, manufacturers can ensure that their products are up to par and meeting customer expectations.

Testing allows manufacturers to identify any areas of concern before they become larger issues, saving time, money, and effort in the long run. The benefits and importance of testing flexible films should not be underestimated as it helps to ensure quality products for customers around the world.

Thus, we at Testronix provide an array of flexible film testing equipment that is used to test the quality of materials before delivering them to the customers.

Now, let us discuss the top 3 flexible film testing instruments that you must use in 2023.

Top 3 flexible film testing instruments that you must use in 2023

We all know that flexible films are durable and considered to be the most widely used packaging materials. Thus, testing these films against different factors like sliding fiction, heat sealing capacity, glossiness, and many more.

Below we have listed the top 3 flexible film testing instruments that you must use in 2023 to improve the quality of your product.

  • Co-efficient of friction testerThe coefficient of friction tester is an accurate instrument that helps in measuring sliding and static friction of plastic films and sheets when they slide.

    The friction tester is manufactured to calculate the coefficient of friction of laminates and other similar materials. This testing instrument has been made in accordance with industry standards that include ASTM D 618, ASTM D 883, BS 2782, and ASTM D 1894. This will provide accuracy in testing.

  • Heat seal testerA heat seal tester or heat sealer is an accurate instrument that has a wide application in the flexible films and packaging industry. This is a consistent tool that helps in providing the flexible film manufacturer with the seal strength or the heat seal strength of the laminate and flexible films. The instrument consists of jaws that have a pneumatic operation with the help of which sealing can take place easily and more accurately. The instrument also has a PID digital controller and temperature controller for both jaws.  The heat seal tester has a digital LED display. The 300 MM heat seal tester has wide jaws and provides the consistent sealing ability of the sample. The instrument also adheres to international test standards like Standards: ASTM F 2029 which will ensure accuracy in test results.

  • Gloss MeterThe gloss meter triangle is a device that is designed specially to measure the gloss reflection on the surface of the material. The instrument is provided with numerous geometrical angles to fulfill the testing need of a vast number of customers. The device is designed specifically to measure the gloss of a particular surface and to ascertain the amount of light that is redirected from the surface. We have designed this gloss meter triangle as per quality standards including ASTM D2457, ASTM D523, ISO2813, and GB/T 9754.

These are the top flexible testing instruments that you must use in 2023 for your packaging industry. You can give us a call at +91 9313140140 or email us at Our team of technical experts will consult you regarding all your needs and queries.
