Description

The Military Packaging laboratory is divided into 2 primary qualification testing areas:material and containers.

Key materials testing capabilities and equipment located at Lakehurst include:

  • Electrostatic Decay
  • Surface Resistivity
  • Triboelectric Charge Generation
  • Electromagnetic Interference
  • Watervapor Transmission Rate
  • Oxygen Transmission Rate
  • Tensile & Compression (Breaking, Elongation, Puncture, Bursting & Tear)
  • Contact Corrosivity
  • Vapor Inhibitor Ability.

Key container testing capabilities and equipment include:

  • Shock
  • Vibration
  • Superimposed Loading
  • Leak
  • Hoisting
  • Handling

Asset List:

  • Static Decay Control Unit, Faraday Cage, Environmental Chamber: Tests for a material's ability to dissipate a 5000 volt charge within 2 seconds
  • Resistivity Probe, Digital Teraohmmeter, Environmental Chamber:Tests for the electrical resistance of barrier materials and cushioning materials
  • EMI Chamber, Signal Generator, Spectrum Analyzer, Antennae:Tests for a material's ability to provide a 25dB minimum attenuation a 1 - 10 GHz range
  • Shielded Bag Test Fixture, Electrostatic Charge Generator, Digital Oscilloscope: Tests for a material's ability to attenuate 97% of a discharged pulse of 1000 volts
  • MOCON OXTRAN 2/21: Detects and measures extremely small amounts of oxygen as it passes through barrier materials (films)
  • MOCON PERMATRAN-W 3/31:Tests for extremely low transmission of water vapor through barrier materials under certain conditions of temperature, humidity, and flow rates
