Protecting What Matters

Request Testing

Below are the forms to initiate testing at the COE laboratory. Feel free to contact us by e-mail or phone for assistance or clarification with completing the forms. A COE employee will contact you within 24 hours of submitting a form.


Thermal Chamber Testing through ISTA Standard 20 and ASTM D3103, as well as Thermal Simulation, can be performed on packaging or other items using one of our three Environmental Test Chambers. Temperature ranges from negative 50°C up to 100°C can be programmed into the chambers as well as humidity.



Drop testing can be done in either a custom format or following one of the typical testing protocols such as the ISTA drop sequence (ISTA 3A).



R-Value or Thermal Conductivity testing can be performed on solid materials using ASTM method C518 through a Heat Flow Meter or ASTM D7984 through a Hot Disc Analyzer.



Compression Testing as well as all of the standard Corrugated Testing (ECT, FCT, etc.) can be performed up to a force of 2,000 lbs. on items with dimensions less than 13" x 13" x 20".



Infrared Imaging is done using an FLIR camera to photograph or videotape your sample (typically packaging) to show any thermal weak spots in the components. Dry ice is typically added in the case of packaging.




 

COVID-19 Vaccine Distribution

EFP is currently mass producing our proprietary line of eQUAL branded pre-qualified cold chain shippers to distribute Moderna vaccines that protect against the COVID-19 virus.

CDC Moderna guidelines warp speed vaccine covid-19 corona

We currently have manufacturing facilities strategically placed across the United States that allow the company to reach front line workers responsible for administering the first wave of COVID-19 vaccines during Operation Warp Speed.

EFP’s shipping solutions provide the vaccines with the required temperature guidelines from the CDC for distribution to hospitals, nursing homes, pharmacies, and all other facilities administering the vaccine.
