Status: active
Page Count: 7
scope:

This method describes procedures for determining the ability of fiberboard containers to protect their contents and/or to withstand impact in free-fall drops. These procedures are specifically designed for controlled drop testing of solid fiber or corrugated shipping containers

They do not apply to cylindrical containers or cans made of fiber.

This test is not normally used on packages heavier than 68 kg (150 lb).

NOTE 1: Heavier packages may rarely be tested, but are unwieldy and usually undergo other tests such as incline impact or rotational edge/corner/flat drops. These tests are not defined in this method.

No single procedure is applicable to all handling, transportation and environmental conditions. Alternative test procedures are available in the literature cited in the References section.
