Color Measurement (LAB Value)
Used to determine a specification for an acceptable color range instead of just what looks good "by eye". This reduces color variation from package to package.
Flexo can read a color off a film sample to match an exact color or determine the closest PMS color in our printing process.
Scuff Resistance of Ink
Determines how durable the ink needs to be to survive transportation and shelving
Ensures ink will not peel or pick off plastic film.
Measures the amount of white or any other color ink to determine acceptable print appearance.
Calculates coating weight of the varnish to establish minimum amounts for a high-quality product.
Accurate Gauge Testing
Confirms the thickness of a film sample to guarantee appropriate film strength.
Shows how the art on the film will mold around your product being packaged.
Oxygen Barrier Capability
Measures the amount of oxygen allowed to go through the film, which helps determine the shelf life of the product being packaged.
Moisture Barrier Capability
Measures the amount of water vapor allowed to go through the film, which helps determine the shelf life of the product being packaged.
Percentage of Haze or Clarity of Film
Measures clarity of film, which is important when show casing product inside your package.
Tensile Properties of Film
Measures the strength or the elasticity of film before it breaks.
Denotes the exact materials a film sample is made of (Polyethylene, Polypropylene, Polyester, etc.).
Create hand sample or mock-up of pouch for review.
Measure the strength of a seal or how difficult a package is to open.
Coefficient of Friction (COF)
Assesses the amount of friction in the film. This determines how much "slip" your package will have when running through your packaging lines as well as help establish the raw material properties needed for your loading machines.
Evaluates tear-off strength (force needed to peel a perforation apart). This is the ideal measurement for loading machines at your packaging sites.
