Low density polyethylene (LDPE) is a thermoplastic material and has major applications in packaging industry. It is used to manufacture Plastic wrap, cling film, shrink wrap, etc. They are known to be flexible and strong in nature. They wrap up the product to every single inch and deliver maximum protection. However, increasing technological advancements have pulled the customer expectations. Now they desire of more strength packaging material which ensure no damage to the content inside due to sudden impacts. Equipments such as Dart Impact Tester is a reliable test solution for evaluating the impact resistance of LDPE packaging material.
The specimen are held using circular shaped annular clamping device, which ensure no slipping of the specimen during the test process. Moreover, tighter the specimen stretched and held, better the evaluation process is. To make the test less complicated, designer have implemented a single push button to initiate the test.
