This standard gives instructions for the testing of moisture vapour transmission and spectral transmission of plastic containers. The tests are carried out by gravimetric analysis, and by light adsorption measured in a spectrophotometer. As part of the test, the plastic containers are required to be tightened to a specified closure torque. Mecmesin equipment can be used to apply the required closure torque.
