    Significance and Use

    2.1 This test method is applicable to all products packaged in prepressurized containers, and is rapid and reproducible.

    2.2 Actual usage dispensing conditions are simulated in the test.

    2.3 This test method is such that any slight variance in valves and actuators are overcome, and the final equilibrium pressure in the container is correlated to the amount of product dispensed.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of pressure drop rate of compressed gas-propelled products.

    1.2 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.
