ASTM F1140

Standard Test Methods for Internal Pressurization Failure Resistance of Unrestrained Packages.

ASTM F1140 evaluates the response of flexible packaging subjected to internal pressure. The method is applicable to a variety of packaging sizes, shapes and seal configurations and may be performed at stages along the packaging life cycle. Packaging configurations options include open/closed and with/without the product. Three tests are outlined within ASTM F1140: Burst; Creep Test; and Creep to Failure.
