BOPP is used in a variety of applications and in several industries, including food containers and package labels, and much more. This Biaxially-Oriented (BO) Polypropylene (PP) is a stronger and more transparent material that has been widely used in the packaging industry due to its durability, and moisture resistance. Several organic and inorganic compounds are added to these BOPP laminate testing films during the production process, which may cause bacteria and mould to grow when the storage environment changes. Thus, testing these films at high temperatures is also necessary. We at Testronix Testing Instruments have come up with one of the highly efficient testing instruments known as a humidity chamber

The digital model of this lab testing instrument has been equipped with various advanced features that may vary from material to material. When you place the BOPP laminate sample in this testing instrument then it will be observed before and after the test. This testing chamber will create an environment that helps to improve the quality of samples depending on the test results.

Here in this blog, we are going to provide you with information about the use of the Testronix humidity chamber and how it is helpful in the BOPP laminate industry. So, let us get started!

Test the changes in BOPP laminates when exposed to high temperatures

BOPP laminated bags are one of the most recent advancements in the packaging business. Many dry items, such as feed bags, fertilizer bags, and pet food bags, have been packed in them. In order to avoid any sort of deterioration caused by moisture and higher barrier property against the paper, these laminates will undergo various tests like humidity control tests, friction tests, and much more.

Manufacturers need to analyze the effect of high temperatures on these films so as to deliver accurate products to their customers. Thus, with our humidity test chamber, you can easily examine how these BOPP laminates will react when they were exposed to different variations of humidity. This type of environmental testing is used by packaging manufacturers to test the various parameters of their products in the harshest of conditions.

Humidity chambers are used to evaluate the impact of various conditions on items in order to determine how long they will last and when they will fail. Whenever you select any humidity chamber then you need to keep several factors in mind. You can read about the top 3 factors while selecting the right humidity chamber.

Now, let us focus on the features and technical specifications of the Testronix humidity chamber digital model.
