Summary of ISTA 1D Package Integrity Testing

ISTA 1D is an integrity test that covers the testing of individually packaged products weighing 150 pounds (68 kg) or more when prepared for shipment. The ISTA test procedure calls for a number of tests including:

  • Atmospheric Measurement Test Block-Temperature and Humidity.
  • Compression Conditioning Block- Compression.
  • Vibration Test Block-Fixed Displacement.
  • Random.

  • Protection of products and profits with reduced damage and product loss.
  • Economically-balanced distribution costs.
  • Customer satisfaction and continued business.
