This specification covers the thread configuration and dimensions for finishes for plastic bottles with screw-type closures. The bottle overflow and body dimensional tolerances are detailed. The test apparatus for determining bottle capacity consists of a balance, pipet, graduated cylinder, beaker, conditioned water, and stop watch. In addition, the test apparatus for determining finish and body dimensions includes micrometers, Vernier height gages or Vernier calipers, internal micrometers or telescoping gages, and commercial scale. The test methods discussed are for the determination of bottle capacity, body dimensions, and finish dimensions.
