Our experts have extensive experience in physical and mechanical testing and quality assessment of glass container packaging;this extends to neck finish specifications and the correct use, specification and fitting of closures - whether they be screw caps, stoppers or corks, pumps, ROPP, misters, atomizers or dispensers and made from glass, plastic, metal or other.
Specifications can be compared to ensure that the cap, closure or fitment should form the correct interactions; measurements of physical samples can be made to check conformity against the specifications and advice can be given where changes may be necessary.
In the case of glass or closure failures we can examine both failed and intact samples to determine the cause of the failure - whether this be mis-handling, abuse, defects in the glass or closure, damage from processing, out-of-specification components or other reasons.
This service can also be provided as part of our; expert witness service where a failure has the potential to result in civil action.
