This test method affords a more rapid answer to the ever-present problem of mass loss during storage. It is of particular value in determining the effectiveness of valve stake and clinch seal elastomers in contact with new formulations. This test method may also be used to evaluate new valves with standard mixtures.View Less
1.1 This test method covers the determination of approximate mass loss due to valve seepage rate of aerosol products by the collection and measurement of gases seeping through the valve and into a special eudiometer tube, over a relatively short time period.
1.2 It can be shown that the average refrigeration-filled
