Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers requirements for molded, non-fabric reinforced, elastomeric water bottles with closure and screw stopper, generally used with hot or cold water in personal hygiene and health care. Bottles to be used shall be manufactured from an elastomeric compound that has the following physical properties determined: tensile strength, ultimate elongation, resistance to heating at a certain temperature and resistance to water also at a certain degree. Aside from that, the stopper of the bottles shall also be manufactured from a noncorrosive metal or polymeric material. The bottle and stopper shall not be toxic, sensitizing, locally irritating, or otherwise harmful under normal conditions of use. The construction shall consist of an integral body and closure designed for use with hot or cold water.
