GunnLab Plastics Testing Pty Ltd

We offer three main categories of services commonly requested by the plastics industry:


  • Gas permeability of packaging, including oxygen transmission and water vapour transmission – two of the most important determinants of the shelf life of packaged foods.
  • Chemical and Infra-red analysis to determine the types of plastic materials a component or sample is made from, including multi-layered structures – useful for investigating consistency of formulation, testing for quality conformance, and for market research.
  • A range of mechanical tests of plastic films and physical tests of rigid plastics – useful for investigating problems or discrepancies in performance of different batches, prototypes, and production trials.


We also offer  many other industry standard tests and bespoke testing.
