Burst test according to ASTM F1140 / F1140M

How much air pressure will burst your primary packaging?

In the burst test, the packaging of medical products is subjected to overpressure until it finally bursts.

In the test procedure, the pressure is increased via an air supply until bursting is unavoidable. The location and the measured pressure provide information about the strength of the sealing seam area and about the weakest point of the packaging.
