Summary of ASTM F2825 Climatic Stressing of Packaging Systems for Single Parcel Delivery
The scope of ASTM F2825 regulatory compliance testing provides a uniform basis for evaluating the ability of a packaging system to withstand a range of climatic stresses. These packaging systems may be exposed during distribution throughout the world and will still need to provide the product protection from damage or alteration.
The ASTM F2825 test procedure is designed as conditioning before testing for overnight or two-day delivery systems of a single parcel packaging system or as a standalone test for climatic stressing of packaging systems. ASTM F2825 testing does not cover refrigerated, frozen food storage, or cryogenic storage conditions. Only the climatic environments encountered in various regions of the world are covered by this practice.
ASTM F2825 standard package testing labs provide a method for conditioning packaging systems using climatic conditions that occur in actual distribution. The recommended exposure levels are based on available information on shipping, handling, and storage environments, current industry practices, and published studies. They are not absolute extremes but recorded daily averages in cold and hot climates of the world.
