Burst Testing

What is Burst Testing?

The burst test is performed by pressurizing the package until it bursts. The results for burst testing include the burst pressure data and a description of where the seal failure occurred.

There are a number of burst types that can be carried out as per the ASTM standards (ASTM F1140, ASTM F2054) including Dynamic / Static burst, Creep test and Creep to fail. These burst tests can be carried out either on open or closed packages. These types of burst tests can be carried out using either unrestrained or restrained methods.

Why do Burst Testing?

  • Used to measure and quantify the strength of Medical Device Package Sterile Barrier Systems as well as other sealed flexible packages
  • Burst testing is used to determine the package’s weakest point

Guidance Documents / Standards:

  • ISO 11607
  • ASTM F1140 – Standard Test Methods for Internal Pressurization Failure Resistance of Unrestrained Packages
  • ASTM F2054 – Standard Test Method for Burst Testing of Flexible Package Seals Using Internal Air Pressurization Within Restraining Plates
