1.1 This practice covers the storage testing of aerosol products.

1.2 There are two major types of storage tests that may be performed on aerosol products:

1.2.1 Live Storage Testswhere the valves are actuated and the determinations are made at relatively frequent intervals (the purpose being to simulate consumer use of aerosol dispensers), and

1.2.2 Dead Storage Testsperformed to simulate warehouse storage conditions when shelf-life information is sought.

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. For specific precautionary statements, see Section 4.
