Publication Date: 10 October 1999
Status: inactive
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Packaging materials and accessories): 55.040
scope:

1. Scope

1.1 This test method covers the determination of the thermal insulation quality of a package and its enclosed packaging from temperature differentials between the packaged item and the outside environment. It is suitable for testing packages with and without various internal refrigerants and with or without interior packaging. Representative test conditions covered are indicated by Fig. 1 and Fig. 2. Depending upon the type of insulation material used, a water-vapor proof barrier might be used just inside the exterior packages of Fig. 1.

1.2 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. Specific precautionary statements are given in 5.2.3 and 9.2.2.
