Applied testing laboratories and equipment are maintained to performance-test filled packages and to conduct a wide range of package evalutations including Drop Tests, Accelerated Storage Tests, Barrier Tests, Vibration Tests, and Adhesive Tests.
The Smurfit-Stone Technical Center's TAPPI(Technical Association of the Pulp and Paper Industry) laboratory is staffed and equipped to conduct a full spectrum of physical property analyses of paper, polymer films, and adhesives. Tests include: Porosity, Smoothness, Tear and Tensile Strength, Impact, and Coefficient of Friction.
Analytical testing provides compositional information on papers, polymer films, and adhesives. Qualitative and quantitative analyses provide identification of unknown compositions including film types (polyethylene, polypropylene, and coextrusions). Laboratory instrumentation includes: Fourier Transform Infrared Spectophotometer, Differential Scanning Calorimeter, Water Vapor Transmission Apparatus, and Optical Microscopy.
