|Publication Date:||10 November 1997|
|ICS Code (Packaging and distribution of goods in general):||55.020|
These test methods2 measure the downward forces during the disengagement of lug-style caps from their respective containers.
These test methods measure the maximum torque developed while the cap is further disengaged by turning of the container.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
2 These test methods may provide a supplemental procedure to Test Method D 3471 that similarly require a random push-down while turning to open. Data generated may not be comparable to Test Method D 3471 procedure.
