Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 15 August 1992
Status: active
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Packaging materials and accessories): 55.040
scope:

This test method covers two procedures for conducting impact tests on loaded containers or shipping units (pallet loads), as follows:

Procedure A, to test the ability of a container or shipping unit to withstand impacts, and

Procedure B, to test the ability of a container or shipping unit or interior packing, or both, to provide protection to the contents, when subjected to impacts.

Either of these two procedures may be used to evaluate different designs of containers of the same size and carrying the same load. These procedures are suitable for testing various types of containers such as boxes, crates, barrels, drums, kegs, bags, sacks, or pails made of various materials or combinations of materials and for shipping units such as pallet loads or palletized units.

The procedures described in this test method are particularly suitable for testing large or heavily loaded containers.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered 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 limitations prior to use. Specific precautionary statements are given in Note 1 and Section 7.
