Who Measures Film Thickness?

Packaging developers and product manufacturers measure and specify the thickness of the film to ensure the robustness of the packaging and the functionality of the barrier.

Various test methods are used in this specification including burst testing, tear testing and various film migration tests. These tests, including thickness measurement, are repeated as part of Quality Assurance inspection throughout the manufacture of a product.
