Packaging containers such as PET bottles and cans must be able to withstand the capping process plus stacking during storage and transportation.

One of the most critical parameters in quantifying the design and quality of containers are their resistance to top-loading. Top-load testing (also known as Crush Testing or Compressive Strength Testing) evaluates a packaging material’s structural resistance to a compressive load, to the point where it deforms or collapses.
