Thermal shock testing involves exposing a package or product to extreme temperatures to determine its resistance to sudden changes in temperature.

The package or product undergoes a pre-determined number of cycles during which it is exposed to extremely high temperatures and then extremely low temperatures immediately afterwards.

After the final cycle has been performed, the package or product is inspected for damage, loss of integrity and loss of performance or functionality.

An example of a thermal shock test cycle could be:

Hold at upper and lower temperatures for approx. 1 hour for each.
