Test method for measuring the sealing force of flexible barriers


Medical devices and pharmaceuticals are used for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of human and animal diseases. Therefore, a high level of safety is required and many of these items are subject to very strict standards and regulations. This video shows how to measure the sealing force of flexible barrier materials that comply with the relevant part of ASTM F88/F88M-15: 2015. 

With the optional graphical software, the user can view the relationship between load and displacement at the same time as the measurement.
