Do-It® Hang Tab Testing
Issued by Pyrotec - Jan 22nd 2018, 09:18
We are proud to be associated with Do-It® Corporation who takes the utmost care in testing all their hang tabs to ensure lower packaging costs whilst creating optimum retail visibility.
In the testing centre, different hang tab materials and packaging solutions are tested to determine what combination is best to carry various products. This commitment to quality has earned Do-It® Corporation an ISO 9001:2008 certification.
Several of the main tests include:
- Short-term track test which is used to measure initial application performance of a hang tab.
- Long-term hang test which is used to simulate hang tabs in retail locations over varying amounts of time from 20 to 365 days.
- Display strip testing which is used to ensure finger strength and overall holding capacity for a product’s size.
- Custom testing which is used for unusual packaging solutions.
Do-It® has several testing locations in their facility where the testing team will work to provide the best hang tabs and other display solutions based on shape, size, material, weight, and the environment different products will be displayed in.
Do-It® Corporation has been providing clients with packaging display solutions for over 40 years and has become the world’s largest hang tab manufacturer. This has all been achieved by taking the time to work with clients and figuring out what point-of-sale solutions are the most durable and cost-effective for their products.

Coding and marking is the method of printing essential product and traceability information onto packaging, labels and other manufactured goods and materials. These include barcodes, serialisation codes, and expiry or ‘best by’ dates.
The word ‘disruption’ is a noun, used to describe a disturbance or problem that interrupts an event. So, when we talk about disruptive innovation or disruptive technology, these phrases may evoke thoughts of chaos. However, when done right, disruptive technology can break the confines of old-school thinking.
As technological innovation increases so too do customers’ demands. With so much choice on offer, consumers not only know what a great customer experience is, but they also know when a company makes them feel special and where they’d prefer to spend their money. Building lasting relationships with consumers and earning their loyalty is, therefore, a primary focus for brand owners.
According to Vaughan Croeser, brand director for Castle Lager Africa, ‘the main barrier keeping people away from each other is the pervasiveness of labels and stereotypes, and the misconceptions we carry about other people’. To help fix this divide, Castle Lager Africa launched its thought-provoking and well-received #smashthelabel campaign.
