Standard Test Method for Column Crush Properties of Blown Thermoplastic Containers
|Publication Date:||1 September 2011|
This test method covers the determination of mechanical properties of blown thermoplastic containers, whether blown commercially or in the laboratory, loaded under columnar crush conditions at a constant rate of compressive deflection.
NOTE 1-Although this test method was developed specifically for blow-molded containers, the general procedure can also be applied to containers of suitable geometries produced by other means, for example, thermoforming, injection molding, etc.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
NOTE 2-There is no known ISO equivalent to this standard.
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.
