ASTM D7709 Measuring Water Vapor Transmission Rate of Pharmaceutical Bottles
ASTM D7709 is used to measure the water vapor transmission rates (WVTRs) of high-barrier multiple-unit containers (bottles), high-barrier single-unit containers (blisters), and quasi-barrier single-unit containers used for packaging pharmaceutical items. The values stated in SI are considered standard.
The goal of the ASTM D7709 tests is to acquire accurate WVTR results that can be utilized to distinguish between different barrier packages for medicinal goods.
ASTM D7709 desiccant is poured into the bottle, which is then closed in the usual manner, including any membrane (tamper-evident or otherwise) sealed in place. The desiccant-filled bottle is kept at 40°C and has 75% relative humidity. The desiccant-filled container is weighed at regular intervals until it reaches a steady-state weight growth. Once the bottles have reached a steady-state, they are weighed five times in a row.

Specimens used in ASTM D7709 testing should be conditioned at 40 ± 2°C and 75 ± 5 percent RH.
The following formula is used in ASTM D7709 testing:
ASTM E572 test method covers the analysis of stainless and alloy steels by Wavelength Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence Spectrometry (WDXRF). It provides rapid, multi-element determinations with sufficient accuracy to assure product quality.
The ASTM D2674 test is a standard test method for the analysis of sulfochromate etch solutions used in the surface preparation of aluminum. The ASTM D2674 standard specifies a method for determining the efficacy of an etchant used to prepare the surface of aluminum alloys for subsequent adhesive bonding.
An immunological method for quantization of Hevea Natural Rubber (HNRL) proteins using rabbit anti-HNRL serum. Rabbits immunized with HNRL proteins react to the majority of the proteins present, and their sera have the capability to detect most if not all the proteins in HNRL.
ASTM G65 measures the resistance of metallic materials to abrasion using the dry sand/rubber wheel apparatus. The quality, durability, and toughness of the sample are determined using this test. Metallic materials are ranked in their resistance to scratching abrasion under a controlled environment.
ASTM E2141 test methods provide accelerated aging and monitoring of the performance of time-dependent electrochromic devices (ECD) integrated in insulating glass units (IGU). This test helps to understand the relative serviceability of electrochromic glazings applied on ECD.
ASTM C724 test method is used in analyzing the quality and ease of maintenance of a ceramic decoration on architectural-type glass. This test method is useful in the acknowledgment of technical standards.
