A wide variety of materials that are classified as consumer products require thermal analysis for adequate characterization. Obviously, the packaging is often polymeric, and thus analyzed like other polymers. However, thermal analysis also studies the chemical interactions between the packaging and the product itself, especially to check for unexpected and even detrimental effects. In addition, many materials themselves require thermal analysis to understand their behavior.
Some examples include:
Stress cracking in packaging
UV curing of nail polish
Wax content and properties in lipsticks
Quality control of packaging materials
