Migration and Packaging
Materials and articles intended to come into contact with food must comply with several European and national laws and regulations.
BPI provides advice on this legislation and accordingly performs tests on all types of food contact materials (such as packagings, kitchen utensils, machine...
Gaspermeability (O2 - N2 - CO2 ) of materials and packaging
Transport simulation and climate testing of packaging and palletised items
A transport simulation mimics a real transport under standardized conditions. So, the repeatability and comparability of the tests are warranted; in this way test comparisons and repetitions can be done at any time and place.
A transport simulation consists of a number of different tests, which of...
Testing packaging materials
The quality of your packaging is it always the same?
Does your new packaging has the right quality?
In discussion with your supplier or with a customer?
We can determine the technical properties for paper, folding carton and corrugated board as well as for plastic materials
Determination of the gas, water vapour and air permeability
The permeability of O2, N2, CO2 and other gases as well as water vapour through packaging materialshas an influence on the conservation conditions of foodstuff, such as drinks and fresh vegetables.Testing those materials and/or packaging is indispensable to prevent problems.The Belgian Packaging...
