Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 May 2003
Status: inactive
Page Count: 5
ICS Code (Cases. Boxes. Crates): 55.160
scope:

This classification covers containers used to hold plastic resins with bulk density (Test Methods D 1895) of 27 to 39 lb/ft³(0.432 to 0.625 g/cm³).

This classification does not apply to any plastic resins with bulk density below 27 lb/ft³ (0.432 g/cm³) or above 39lb/ft³ (0.625 g/cm³).

This standard does not apply to bulk boxes containing hazardous materials.

This standard does not address box/pallet unitization requirements.

This standard does not address requirements of plastic bag liners normally placed inside the corrugated bulk box before filling with plastic resin.

This standard does not address tamping, shaking, or other compression methods of the resin filled bulk box to condense entrained air and increase headspace in the bulk box.

This standard does not address blocking and bracing or other shipping requirements normally associated with bulk box unit deliveries.

This standard does not address filled bulk box/pallet unit stack height.

This standard does not address international shipping regulations of bulk box/pallet units.

This standard does not address pallet opening sizes for pallet trucks.

Units of Measure - The value 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 nonconformance 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 requirements prior to use.

This classification offers an organized collection of information or a series of options and does not recommend a specific course of action. This document cannot replace education or experience and should be used in conjunction with professional judgement. Not all aspects of this classification may be applicable in all circumstances. This ASTM standard is not intended to represent or replace the standard of care by which the adequacy of a given professional service must be judged, nor should this document be applied without consideration of a project's many unique aspects. The word "standard" in the title of this document means only that the document has been approved through the ASTM consensus process.
