The integrity of a fluid or gas-filled container can be tested in terms of its propensity to burst. This may involve material failure (e.g. splitting), closure failure, or seal/seam failure.

Seals and seams can be tested under peel, where a transverse sample is cut from a container, and pulled apart, but the result of internal pressure is failure as a result of cleavage peel, rather than as represented by a standard T-peel test. There is a variety of test methods involving inflationary burst, including sensitive gaseous leak detection, but a realistic option involves simply compressing a filled container using a standard radius cylindrical compression fixture or flat plate Mecmesin can design and manufacture custom fixtures and containment.
