Food, drinks, personal care

Photostability of Packaged Consumer Goods

The success of todays consumer goods such as drinks, foodstuffs, personal care, and household products, is highly dependent upon their packaging. The use of transparent packaging is often preferred by manufacturers as it enables contents to easily be seen by consumers. Oftentimes, the ability to see attractive colors through transparent packaging plays a key role in influencing spontaneous purchasing decisions of certain products or brands. However, wherever there is light, there is a risk for photo-induced reactions that can impact colorants, vitamins, flavors, scents, or product homogeneity.

Realistic Testing

Atlas offers several tailored solutions based on xenon technology to address todays challenges of realistic consumer goods testing. Xenon is recognized worldwide as the light technology with the best full-spectrum match to solar radiation. Creating realistic light conditions is simply a matter of using the right optical filters for the specific application; e.g. Daylight, Daylight behind Window Glass, Store Light.
