Accelerated aging test ASTM F1980
Does your packaging lack time for real-time aging processes?
For sterile products that need to be brought to market quickly, but more importantly safely, accelerated aging testing of packaging materials according to ASTM F1980 is advised. It must be ensured that the product still safely fulfills its function when the specified best-before date is reached.
Real-time aging as the key comparator
All data collected from accelerated aging must then be verified with data from real-time aging. Real-time aging storage, in turn, takes place at a standard climate of 23°C and a relative humidity of 50%. We have seven climatic chambers on our premises for accelerated aging testing. We can offer you this test in combination with transport simulations and other integrity tests.
Testing Standards & Equipment
- ASTM F1980
- Constant climate chambers: Temperatures up to 75°C and a relative humidity of 90% can be realized.

To be able to submit the appropriate offer, we need the following information:
- Aging temperature
- Real-time storage temperature
- Storage time to be simulated
Based on this, the correct duration of Accelerated Aging is calculated.
The price is determined based on the volume to be tested. Therefore, the outer dimension and the number of test samples are required for quotation.
If you require special aging parameters of temperature and relative humidity, please contact us. We will be happy to check the feasibility.
We find answers for your questions
We convey competence, put packaging in focus and find answers to your questions - authentically, honestly, competently and without digressing. So that we can answer your questions, examine your products and expand your knowledge of packaging, send us your e-mail address and we will get back to you.
