The Visual imaging correlation-2D is an innovative software application that can be used for strain measurement of different packaging materials. In recent years, Vic-2D has been increasingly utilized in packaging industry. It is able to break through certain technical limitations of traditional strain testing method and provide a comprehensive strain map that can be suitable for any case of mechanical testing and obtaining the most desired results in the shortest period of time.
In this study, tensile tests are conducted to compare operational performance and functional completeness of conventional mechanical analyzes software, BLUEHILL, with VIC-2D technique. Tensile test is a commonly used method for obtaining strain parameters and mechanical properties of packaging materials. During the test, two strain parameters, Poisson's ratio and tensile strength, are measured. Three different test objects are used: extrusion laminating and coating film (48g PET/Print/10# LDPE/48g Met PET/Pr/7# LDPE/5.0 mil LLDPE), HDPE dog-bone shaped specimen (6.5×0.8125×0.125 inches) and PP dog-bone shaped specimen (6.5×0.1825×0.125 inches).
