Test methods

  • T. A. Turner


The protective and decorative systems used in metal packaging are subjected to a wide range of test procedures both during the material selection stage or as a means of ensuring on-going quality and performance. Tests are carried out by material suppliers and by users, although today greater emphasis is placed on vendor assurance throughout the manufacturing chain. Testing is required to ensure troublefree and as-specified performance at all stages of the manufacturing process, including:
  • application

  • conversion

  • transportation and distribution

  • ultimate performance with the packed product.
