Founded in 1968, PolyFab provides custom engineered plastic fabrications.
We work with many materials and specialize in clear plastics.
Some of the applications we have made include:

Container integrity testing. Peel test procedures of form fill and seal containers. Squeeze container side walls of entire set from a mold. Squeeze each cup to cause 1/8 inch bulge of lid area. Lid should not separate from package when package is squeezed. Observe sealing area for fold-over wrinkles in sealant layer of lidstock. From a first set of containers, visually observe embossed ring in sealed area for completeness. (Embossed ring should be at least 90% complete if present.) Remove a second set of containers (1 cup per mold) and gently peel back each lid at approximately a 45 angle. Observe the peeled area for a generally frosty appearance on both the lid and cup sealed surfaces. Observe entire package for holes, scratches, even flange widths, smooth inside surfaces, and any deformities caused by dirty mold or sealing die.
Electrolytic test. Plastic packages generally do not conduct a flow of low-voltage electricity unless a hole is present. Use a volt meter or amp meter to determine the presence of a closed circuit. If a voltage flow can be measured, use a dye solution to identify the presence of a hole.
