Standard Test Methods for Measurement of Torque Retention for Child Resistant and Non-Child Resistant Packages with Continuous Thread Closures Using Automated Torque Testing Equipment
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
These test methods evaluate the torque retention of continuous thread closures on containers with matching finishes, for predetermined environmental conditions over time. Methods are defined for both Type I, style "A" push down and turn Type II2 child resistant and non child resistant type closures.
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.
NOTE 1-The SI unit system is the recommended system.
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.
