CDF Corporation has successfully passed the design qualification testing of its fiberboard box with plastic bag combination package. CDF’s U.N.-certified bag-in-box will provide the highest levels of protection for transporting hazardous products requiring Class II and III packaging.
The 20-liter bag-in-box packaging endured four rigorous performance tests executed by Ten-E Packaging Services, including drop, stacking, vibration and cobb water absorption.
“Our development team did a tremendous job creating a product that meets the rigorous U.N. standards while offering unique value to our customers. We are excited to continue our growth into the U.N. package market segment,” says Jay Waltz, CDF VP of sales and marketing.
For the box drop tests, each package was dropped from 47.2-inches at a different angle. Any breakage or leaking during the tests void the package. CDF’s bag-in-box package passed the drop tests at 1.2 meters.
The stacking test was performed to ensure the packages are strong enough that they will not collapse. For the stacking tests, two filled packages of the same type were placed on the test sample. The stacked packages had to maintain their position for one hour. It passed the stacking test at 303.9 kg for 24 hours.
The vibration tests were done to simulate the package traveling by motorized vehicle. It passed the vibration test at 4.1Hz for 1 hour.
