For WESTPAK, and likely for you, ensuring safety has always been a top consideration.
When it comes to assuring safety in product protection, one element of concern tends to arise during the creation of a testing protocol:
To what Assurance Level should my package system be tested?
WESTPAK’s short article, ASTM D4169 Assurance Level Determination, helps answer this classic question. We review the fundamental objectives and compare the three Assurance Levels for Compression, Drop, and Vibration testing.
Quantitative targets for each test and level are summarized. Links to our Compression Test Video demonstrating the three levels and ASTM D4169 Vehicle Stacking Test calculator are provided as reference.
