Plastic Testing - Physical Properties

A wide range of physical, barrier and thermal testing of plastic packaging materials is undertaken, providing an objective understanding of materials in conversion, on packaging lines and in use.

You can browse each section listed on the right to see our full range of tests. We are always happy to talk to you about the suitability of particular tests, so please make contact with the Smithers Pira expert shown if you have questions about the test itself or the support you need for your particular project or issue.

We specialise in creating bespoke test programmes based on your requirements, such as investigating product failure or weakness. We can also work with you to develop a custom test method, should it be needed.
