Do-It® Hang Tab Testing
Issued by Pyrotec - Jan 22nd, 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.

Track and trace technology ensures that brand owners can track their products throughout the supply chain and, among other things, protect their shipments against counterfeiting. To do this, product coding and marking is essential for providing traceability information that is displayed on the packaging.

According to Denny Bros Ltd, the inventor of the Fix-a-Form® booklet labels, the UK government turned to informational labelling to help tackle the growing levels of obesity among Britons. Many products now have traffic-light labels on the front of their packaging, showing the levels of ingredients, such as salt and fat, in the product. However, some have suggested that these red, amber and green designs don’t work.
Unlike the seasonal fashion designs for clothing, packaging design trends seem to stick around for some time. However, as we rapidly approach the end of 2018, there are some that are no longer finding traction on retail shelves.
