Package seal strength testing is used to measure the peel separation force of two flexible materials that are bonded together. This test is also called a T-Peel test.



  • Testing the seal on a sterilization pouch (Sterile Barrier System).

  • Test the seal on food packaging


    • Confirm the reproducibility of the sealing process. Create a baseline to screen for changes negatively affecting the packaging seal.

    • Determining if hot tack is creating a good seal.

    • Adherence to design specifications

    • Ease of opening for the user.

    • Determine the packaging's ability to protect product with the package.


    • ASTM F88/F88M Standard Test Method for Seal Strength of Flexible Barrier Materials

    • ASTM D1876 Standard Test Method for Peel Resistance of Adhesives (T-Peel Test)
