ISO 13106:2014 pdf download.Plastics — Blow-moulded polypropylene containers for packaging of liquid foodstuffs
1 Scope
This International Standard provides the requirements of polypropylene resins intended for use in blow-moulded, round containers with capacities up to, and including two litres intended for the packaging of liquids for human consumption. This International Standard also provides tolerances on mass,dimensions, methods of sampling, testing, and performance requirements.
NOTE It is not to be implied that polypropylene resins are the only polymers suitable for these applications,as 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.
NOTE For 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 neck face to bottom plane of the support ledge. The brimful capacity can also be measured using special volume testing equipment (Annex B). For bottles and lipped containers, nominal capacity is approximately 90 % of the brimful capacity.
3.1 extrusion blow-moulded container
container formed from an extruded parison of heat-softened thermoplastic, blow-moulded by the application of air pressure which forces it against the inside walls of a blow mould
4 Raw material
The grade designation(s) described in ISO 1873-1 and ISO 1873-2 for polypropylene shall be used to describe the raw material. Since polypropylene is suitable for use in blow-moulded containers, the specification of grades to be used will depend on many factors including the specific application, type of liquid foodstuff intended to be packed and which kind of filling method to be used, filling capacity of container, container design, and conversion process to be used. In all cases, the choice of a specific grade shall be determined by its suitability for the intended application and agreement between the interested parties.
