ASTM D1596

Standard Test Method for Dynamic Shock Cushioning Characteristics of Packaging Material

Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 April 2014
Status: active
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Packaging materials and accessories): 55.040
scope:

This test method covers a procedure for obtaining dynamic shock cushioning characteristics of packaging materials through acceleration-time data achieved from dropping a falling guided platen assembly onto a motionless sample. This test method does not address any effects or contributions of exterior packaging assemblies.

The data acquired may be used for a single point or for use in developing a dynamic cushion curve for the specific material being tested. Such data may be used for comparison among different materials at specific input conditions, or qualifying materials against performance specifications. Caution should be used when attempting to compare data from different methods or when using such data for predicting in-package performance. Depending upon the particular materials of concern, correlation of such data (from among differing procedures or for predicting in-package performance) may be highly variable.

NOTE 1-Alternative and related method for possible consideration is Test Method D4168.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
