    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covered the determination of the amount of water vapor transmission for flexible heat-sealed packages under specified conditions of exposure.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F02 on Primary Barrier Packaging, this test method was withdrawn in January 2018 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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 determination of the amount of water vapor transmission for flexible heat-sealed packages under specified conditions of exposure.

    Note 1—Adequate heat-seal efficiency should be determined prior to this test method.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this 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.
