Case Study – Lansmont Cushion Testers Deliver ASTM D1596 Results

The Challenge

  • ASTM D1596 is a test method for determining the dynamic shock cushioning characteristics of different types or densities of packaging materials.
  • The test procedure requires dropping a guided platen assembly onto a motionless sample of cushion material.
  • The impact generates an acceleration vs. time data plot which is used for evaluating shock cushioning performance.
