    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method established specifications for product leakage for both the pump dispenser and the final package.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F02 on Primary Barrier Packaging, this test method was withdrawn in January 2017 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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 evaluation of the ability of a pump dispenser to seal when the packaging is held under vacuum. Furthermore, it evaluates the seal between the pump dispenser and the neck container/closure integrity.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to inch-pound units that are provided for information only and are not considered 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.

    See 4.3 for a specific warning statement.
