Drop test standard --performance testing of ISTA packaging products



Ista, the Packaging and Transport Association, is the world-wide packaging product performance testing guide. Ista 1 Series is the most fundamental part of packaging performance testing. They challenge the capacity of packaging and the ability of products to withstand transport hazards, but they do not simulate the risks of actual transport, and there is no need to comply with transport packaging regulations.

The test drop height varies with the weight of the packaged-product:

The use of ISTA test procedures, will benefit from it:

• Shorten the packaging development time, so that products on the market more confident.

• Protect products, reduce product damage and loss, and gain benefits.

• Optimize cost allocation.

• Customer satisfaction with continuous business opportunities.

This article includes: Introduction, testing and reporting.

• Introduction provides the general knowledge that a product needs to know before it enters a test lab.

• Tests describe specific rules for laboratory testing.

• The report identifies the information that should be recorded in the test report submitted to Ista.

The ISTA program gives two metric models of weight and measurement, they are the imperial (in one lb) and the SI metric system. In one lb in front, the metric units are in parentheses, and in some tables they are used separately.

• Any metric mode unit (standard unit) can be used, but the same selected standard unit is applied throughout the testing process

• The same metric can be converted between two digits (for example, 2in and 8mm for the same length).

• But they are not exactly equivalent values.
