Secondary Packages

Secondary Packages Secondary Package exampleare those systems which are designed to contain the primary package (which directly contacts the product). Examples of secondary packages include set up boxes, folding cartons, over wraps, and a variety of others. The functions of a secondary package include: containment of the primary package, bundling of multiple primary packages together, identification of the contents of the primary package, safety and related information required when using the primary product, and similar. Since secondary packages perform a wide variety of functions, the testing procedures for determining their characteristics also involve a wide variety of test protocols. Most of the time, this testing involves the entire package assembly rather than the materials from which it is constructed.Often this requires the fabrication of special details to properly conduct the secondary package test. Westpak is well-equipped to handle a wide variety of common and specialized testing procedures on secondary package systems.
