ASTM WK45679

    Revision of D4332 - 13 Standard Practice for Conditioning Containers, Packages, or Packaging Components for Testing

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D4332 - 13

    Developed by Subcommittee: D10.21 | Committee D10 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The scope of D4332 needs to be clarified to differentiate this standard from D685 and to explain when it is most appropriate to use D4332 and when it is most appropriate to use D685. The wording regarding conditioning 72 hours or to equilibrium are clarified by stating that conditioning to equilibrium may or may not occur in the 72 hour timeline. But, implicitly that the 72 hour time frame is deemed adequate for transit simulation testing. F2825 Standard Practice for Climatic Stressing of Packaging Systems for Single Parcel Delivery is added as a referenced document in Section 2.1, and is referenced in Section 5.3.
