General FAQ’s

What method complies with vacuum decay, and what does it entail for the evaluation of packaging?

The method that complies with vacuum decay for the evaluation of packaging is ASTM F2338. This standard utilizes the vacuum decay method to nondestructively do a leaktest in packages. Vacuum decay entails subjecting the package to a vacuum and monitoring pressure changes within the package to detect any leaks, basically doing a leak check. This method allows for the evaluation of various types of packaging, including rigid and semi-rigid non-lidded trays, rigid nonporous packages, and flexible nonporous packages. By employing vacuum decay, ASTM F2338 ensures thorough evaluation of packaging integrity while maintaining the integrity of the package itself during testing.
