    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of mechanical properties of blown thermoplastic containers when loaded under columnar crush conditions at a constant rate of compressive deflection. Any container, whether blown commercially or in the laboratory, may be used as the test specimen.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

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

    1.3 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.
