hawo InkTest ASTM F1929

The hawo InkTest is a new classic ink test for the routine testing of sealing seams as per ISO 11607-1 and ASTM F1929. It’s the ideal testing system for packaging system performance testing according EN ISO 11607-1 (6.3). To perform the test, a special test fluid is dispensed into the bag using a pipette. Any irregularities that occur (e.g. channels) are immediately visible. Thanks to the handy pipette, sealing seams can be checked from both sides. The hawo InkTest comes in a 75 ml bottle with the pipettes and a drip container.

  • Fast, safe and easy to use
  • Valid results within 20 seconds
