    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 15.09, 2009 Describes several methods for closing, reinforcing and sealing fiberboard (corrugated and solid, excluding triple wall) shipping boxes used for shipment. Meant to be workable in both inch-pound (US customary) units and SI metric units.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 This practice describes several methods for closing, sealing, and reinforcing fiberboard (solid and corrugated, excluding triple wall) shipping boxes used for shipment. One or several methods listed in this practice may be referenced in regulations, specifications, or contracts. (See Appendix for cross reference).

    1.2 This practice is intended to be workable in both inch-pound units and SI units. Unit conversions are intended to be functional but are not necessarily exact; this should not significantly affect the performance of the closing, sealing, or reinforcing methods.

    Note 1-All references to this standard should be made by closure number.

    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.
