  • Bag strength (usually we perform regular fall down tests to check the bag strength)
  •  Standing effect after filled (When the thickness is lower, when 3liter washer fluids is filled, after some time, the doypack may not stand up so straight)

Look at the fall down graphic as below


For this 180 microns 3liter spout doypack, under room temperature, we can fall down from 2m high for 1-2 times, and the doypack will bend a little after 3liter washer fluids is filled.
