    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method provides measures of the drop impact resistance of blow-molded thermoplastic containers as a summation of the effects of material, manufacturing conditions, container design, and perhaps other factors.

    1.2 Three procedures are provided as follows:

    1.2.1 Procedure A, Static Drop Height Method—This procedure is particularly useful for quality control since it is quick.

    1.2.2 Procedure B, Bruceton, Staircase Method—This procedure is used to determine the mean failure height and the standard deviation of the distribution.

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

    Note 1—There is no similar or equivalent ISO standard.

    1.4 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.
