    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covered the application with a given torque of a threaded or lug-style closure to a container, and measures the torque required to unscrew the closure from a container.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D10 on Packaging, this practice was withdrawn in January 2016 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the application with a given torque of a threaded or lug-style closure to a container, and measures the torque required to unscrew the closure from a container.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are for information only.

    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.
