ISO 13106 pdf download Plastics — Blow-moulded polypropylene containers for packaging of liquid foodstuffs
This International Standard provides the requirements ofpolypropylene resins intended for use in blow-moulded, round containers with capacities up to, and including two litres intended for the packagingof liquids for human consumption. This International Standard also provides tolerances on mass,dimensions, methods of sampling, testing, and performance requirements.NOTEIt is not to be implied that polypropylene resins are the only polymers suitable for these applicationsas many other polymers, including PE-HD,PET, etc. are also suitable.

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following definitions of terms apply.
NOTEFor detailed definitions of terms found in this International Standard, refer to ISO 472. Neck height(H) for containers produced using ISBM technology is the perpendicular distance from highest point of the neckace to bottom plane ofthe support ledge. The brimful capacity can also be measured using special volume testingequipment (Annex B).For bottles and lipped containers, nominal capacity is approximately 90 % of the brimfulcapacity.
extrusion blow-moulded container
container formed from an extruded parison of heat-softened thermoplastic, blow-moulded by theapplication of air pressure which forces it against the inside walls of a blow mould
injection blow-moulded container
container formed from an injection-moulded parison that is transferred, while hot, to a blow-mould to
form the container
injection stretch blow-moulded container
container formed from an injection-moulded parison or reheated pre-form that is stretched prior toblow-moulding to impart bi-axial orientation
container bodyprincipal part of a container, usually the largest piece containing the sides
Note 1 to entry: In bottles, the body is the main portion of the bottle without the neck
sloped area of a container between the neck area and the body of the container
part ofa container where shoulder cross-section area decreases to form the finish
plastic forming the opening of a container and shaped to accommodate a specific closure
Note 1 to entry: Neck finish is a threaded, ribbed, or plain part of the container including sealing surface toaccommodate a threaded or press fit closure, lug, and cap, heat sealing gasket or liner and the tamper evidencefeatures.
seal surfacelip portion of the neck finish that makes contact with the sealing gasket or liner to form a sea
3.9closuredevice used to seal off the opening of the container for product containment and providing a barrier toexternal contaminants
height of a finished empty container at its highest point excluding the closure and fitment
external diameter of the finished empty container at a specified height, expressed as the mean of thetwo perpendicular diameters, or as the circumference divided by 3,141 6 at the same specified height
