What Tests Does ISTA International Transport Security Include?

- Nov 07, 2019-


The international association for safe transportation (ISTA) is an association of professionals and institutions that is the leading international organization for packaging and transportation.ISTA is dedicated to the development, design and cost-benefit assessment of protective transport packaging.When your packaging design has passed ISTA testing, you can be sure that the packaging will protect the product from foreseeable hazards in a continuous transport environment.

 

ISTA transport testing provides you with the following tangible benefits

Reduce product damage and loss to ensure product value

Save distribution cost

Reduce and eliminate claims disputes

Shorten packaging development time, enhance market confidence

Improve customer satisfaction and maintain business action

ISTA testing protocol is called ISTA® Test Series, which mainly includes the following contents: ISTA 1 Series: non-simulation Integrity Performance Tests.Test the strength and robustness of the product and package combination.

Procedure 1A: package the product with a weight of 150 LBS (68 kg) or less

Requirements: fixed frequency vibration, impact (drop/bevel impact/horizontal impact) detection

Program 1B: packaged products weigh more than 150 LBS. (68 kg)

Requirements: fixed frequency vibration, impact (drop/bevel impact/horizontal impact) detection

Procedure 1C: extension test for individual packaged products weighing 150 LBS (68 kg) or less

Requirements: pressure, vibration (fixed frequency vibration/random vibration), impact (drop/bevel impact/horizontal impact) detection

Procedure 1D: extension test for individual packaging products weighing more than 150 LBS (68 kg)

Requirements: pressure, vibration (fixed frequency vibration/random vibration), impact (drop/bevel impact/horizontal impact) test, rotary edge drop
