Standard Test Method for Thickness Measurement of Flexible Packaging Material
|Publication Date:||1 August 2013|
|ICS Code (Packaging materials and accessories):||55.040|
This test method covers the measurement of thickness of flexible packaging materials using contact micrometers.
The Precision and Bias statement for this test method was developed using both handheld and bench top micrometers with foot sizes ranging from 4.8 to 15.9 mm (3⁄16 to 5⁄8 in.).
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the 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.
