The International Safe Transit Association, also known as ISTA, is the leading industry developer of test standards and design specifications that define how packages should perform. Keystone has been certified by ISTA as having the proper equipment and training to conduct testing that satisfies their standards.
ASTM International provides guidelines, standards, and testing procedures that ensure product and packaging safety. The standards set forth by ASTM are accepted globally. Keystone Package Testing has testing capabilities for many ASTM Standards. Visit our ASTM Overview page for some of the most common standards that we test to for packaging.
Cold Chain Package Testing
Thermal and Cold Chain packaging refers to products that must remain in a temperature-controlled environment. Often times, packages will experience stresses throughout the distribution process and transportation. A common stressor is environmental conditions. Changes in temperature or humidity can damage packaging (like cardboard) or a product. Transit testing is an important part of ensuring that packages reach their destination ready for consumption/use by the consumer. Keystone has extensive experience performing test on thermal and cold chain packaging.
